EU insists on de-escalation after Soleimani murder

The European Union’s foreign chief Josep Borrell, on Saturday, following the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, re-emphasized the “need for de-escalation”. He did that after meeting Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Brussels.

“Spoke with Zarif about recent developments. Underlined need for de-escalation of tensions,” Borrell tweeted. He called for restraint and to do everything possible to prevent things from getting out of hand in the region.

Borrell also said he urged Zarif to maintain the historic 2015 nuclear agreement with the permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.
