In 2015, Iran signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known as Iran nuclear agreement with the United States and other five world powers; Russia, China, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.
President Donald Trump must decide by Friday whether to continue to back the provisions of the nuclear deal, which effectively opened Iran to global commerce including a tentative deal with US aircraft maker Boeing.
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the deal is "a crucial agreement that makes the world safer".
Zarif did not join the post-meeting press conference but tweeted: "Strong consensus in Brussels today: 1) Iran is complying with #JCPOA, 2) Iranian people have every right to all its dividends, 3) Any move that undermines JCPOA is unacceptable". The protests that erupted in Iran were due to an economic crisis, but morphed into something more fundamental.
One of the criticisms levelled at the nuclear deal is that it does nothing to address Iran's continuing ballistic missile programme and meddling in Middle East conflicts such as Yemen and Syria.
The agreement requires Iran to curb nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief, according to RFE/RL.
Iran has been gripped by anti-government protests in recent weeks, leading the Islamic Republic to imprison thousands of people.

Has North Korea's latest strategy stumped the United States?
This is good for the prepper industry, but perhaps not so good for America's collective mental health. Many , including Trump on occasion, have expressed doubt as to the ultimate impact of diplomacy.
US Ambassador to Netherlands Clashes with Dutch Reporters Over Remarks About Muslims
Hoekstra said he hoped to begin in-depth briefings with Dutch officials on the U.S. perspectives on issues both countries face, including counter-terrorism and cyber threats.
"We and other JCPOA members need to work closely together to ensure that this agreement will continue to be implemented", the Iranian Foreign Minister stressed. Zarif has earlier said that continuation of fulfillment of all commitments based on the 2015 nuclear deal depends on USA complete adherence to the landmark agreement.
Mike Pompeo, named a year ago by President Donald Trump to head the intelligence agency, told Fox News Sunday that economic conditions in Iran "are not good".
The display of resolve came before a decision by the U.S. president, expected on Friday, on whether to continue to sign a waiver to prevent the reimposition of economic sanctions against Iran. Mr Straw detected a "pretty high degree of questioning about where Iran goes", he told the Guardian newspaper.
Separately, 52 US national security experts, including retired USA military officers, members of Congress, and former ambassadors, signed a letter on January 8 calling on Trump not to do anything that jeopardizes the nuclear deal.
The administration has not revealed its intentions, but the Iran unrest is seen as a possible pretext for blowing up the nuclear accord.
Alireza Nader, a senior Iran expert at the Rand Corp., a think tank that frequently consults with the Pentagon, said it made no sense to rattle the Iran deal when there were many other non-nuclear sanctions options that could squeeze the regime.
At a meeting hosted in Brussels by European foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini on January 11, European powers that helped to negotiate the accord were expected to reassure Iran that they remain committed to it.
