EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini said Tuesday that US lawmakers are interested in keeping the Iran nuclear deal, adding that it cannot be renegotiated.

“Renegotiation is not an option,” Mogherini told reporters in Washington. “I have to tell this very clearly.”

“The agreement is composed of different provisions, some of them have different durations, but the commitment not to develop nuclear weapons are forever,” she said, addressing concerns that certain parts of the deal allow Iran to continue its nuclear work after sunset.
