Iran Press/Europe: During the meeting in Vienna on Monday, the two sides conferred on topics of mutual interest, as well as the latest developments concerning the EU’s promised trade mechanism with Iran, and the efforts of the European countries to save the Iran nuclear deal in the wake of the US’ unilateral withdrawal from the agreement and the re-imposition of sanctions against Tehran.
