The European Union announced, on Sunday, that the United States cannot impose international sanctions on Iran, calling for preserving the agreement signed with Tehran in 2015 regarding its nuclear program.

"Washington cannot re-impose international sanctions against Iran," said the European Union's foreign policy official, Josep Borrell, in a statement quoted by "Sputnik", citing the reason for "ending the United States' participation in the nuclear agreement."

Borrell called on "everyone to mobilize their efforts to preserve the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and to refrain from actions that would increase tensions."
