The waivers are on the nuclear sanctions the U.S. agreed to lift as part of the 2015 agreement between the U.S., Iran, the European Union, China, Russia, Germany, the United Kingdom.
"The deal is working, it is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear programme in check", Mogherini said, stressing the importance of preserving an agreement she said is "making the world safer and... preventing a potential nuclear arms race in the region".
The 2015 agreement was brokered by the Obama administration - along with the UK, Russia, France, Germany and China - obliging Iran to limit its nuclear program in exchange for the suspension of sanctions that had for years crippled its economy.

"Iran's regime claims to support democracy, but when its own people express their aspirations for better lives and an end to injustice, it once again shows its true brutal nature", said a statement from the White House press secretary.
It is unlikely that even Trump himself knows what he might do, and even the Europeans do not know what the United States president will do, Zarif said.
Why is Iran's missile programme controversial?
"Salehi said that in case the USA fails to honor its commitments under the Iran nuclear deal, Iran will adopt measures that can affect the current trend of Iran's cooperation with the agency", the Iranian report said.
He added that he does not think anyone has come up with a better alternative to the Iranian nuclear deal. That bill, sources said, is failing to gain traction among Republicans due to what many described as a range of flaws that mainly serve to lock in the Iranian nuclear deal and prevent Trump from abandoning it.
What does Mr Trump want to change?
The former United Kingdom foreign secretary Jack Straw has suggested the European Union consider legislation to protect European Union companies from U.S. sanctions if Washington reimposes sanctions over the deal.
