European Union (EU)’s outgoing foreign policy chief chaired the meeting that took place on the sidelines of the 74th United Nations General Assembly in New York. 

Wednesday’s meeting was not s preset formal meeting about the JCPOA Joint Commission. 

The talks took place as all foreign ministers of the agreement signatories are in New York to attend the UNGA.
