TEHRAN, Sep. 17 (MNA) –Belgium’s Bracke says that US officials’ reluctance in dealing with the nuclear deal of 2015 will have little influence on the positions of the European Union.

“The doubt and reluctance of American officials has no impact on the positions of European Union in regard to the JCPOA,” asserted the President of the Belgian Chamber of Representatives, Siegfried Bracke, after his Sunday meeting with Ali Akbar Velayati, the Head of the Strategic Research at Iran’s Expediency Council.

“I, as the spokesperson and head of this Belgian delegation that the European Union will still comply with the JCPO and what has come in the nuclear agreement,” noted the Belgian lawmaker.

“We must counter global terrorism and eradicate the sources of terrorism and it requires a bilateral endeavor to be followed in the future,” highlighted the Belgian official who is visiting Tehran, touching upon the issue of peace in the region.

“Currently we are in a sensitive and critical moment so we have to concentrate all our efforts to revivify democracy and the rights of minorities in the region,” underlined the visiting lawmaker of Belgium.

“While the common interests of Iran and Belgium are of high importance, the two countries should have interaction for securing bilateral and multilateral interests in regard ti the European Union,” he said after referring to the opening of the European Union mission in Tehran. “Business activists can enjoy a 600 million market of the EU instead of focusing on the 11 million market of Belgium,” reassured the Belgian official.
