European Foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini expressed concern on Monday over the Trump administration’s proposed deep cut in US foreign assistance, saying it would destabilize major parts of the world and hurt American national security.

“Investing in America means investing in places that are far away,” Mogherini said during an international conference on nuclear policy in Washington.

Mogherini also strongly defended the Iran nuclear deal, pointing out that the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, has five times confirmed Iran’s compliance with the 2015 agreement designed to stop it from developing nuclear weapons.
