The German Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the foreign ministers agreed that they want to revive the traditionally close transatlantic partnership and tackle global challenges together in future.

The EU foreign ministers and their new US counterpart Antony Blinken also discussed the Iran nuclear deal, which has been in tatters since former President Donald Trump pulled out of the pact in 2018.

"The E3 and the US discussed how a united approach could address our shared concerns towards Iran," tweeted British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian on Twitter described the talks as an "important conversation on Iran" and handling nuclear and regional security challenges "together".  

US State Department spokesman Ned Price said that at the meeting, Mr. Blinken underscored the US commitment to coordinated action to overcome global challenges.
