Iran, Ireland discuss JCPOA

London, May 19, IRNA - Ireland's Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday that the revival of the Iran nuclear deal was the centerpiece of a meeting and talks between Irish and Iranian foreign ministers in Dublin.

Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney met and held talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday, according to the Ireland foreign ministry's Twitter message.

It added that the two sides discussed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as part of Ireland's role in the UN Security Council and other regional issues.

Dublin is the third leg of the Iranian foreign minister's European tour which started from Madrid, Spain, on May 13.

Since the beginning of this year, the Security Council has entrusted Ireland with the role of facilitator and coordinator of Resolution 2231 (in approving the JCPOA). The Irish Foreign Minister visited Tehran last March to meet with senior officials of Iran to discuss the revival of the JCPOA and the implementation of Security Council Resolution 2231.

Earlier yesterday, Zarif held talks with the President of the Italian Chamber of Deputies Roberto Fico.

He has also met with Pope Francis, Vatican Prime Minister Cardinal Pietro Parolin, as well as Vatican Minister of Foreign Affairs Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher.

He has held talks with the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs and the International Cooperation Luigi Di Maio as part of his tour.
