Iran and world powers agreed to a landmark nuclear deal to limit Iran's enrichment of uranium in exchange for lifting economic sanctions last year.
Mogherini, speaking at a news conference after meeting Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek, said it was necessary that all steps agreed have to be "properly done."
But she said that "things are going well" and the sanctions might be lifted "rather soon."
Iranian President Hassan Rohani has predicted Iran will undergo an "economic boom" with the lifting of international sanctions.
"The government is running the country under sanctions, not under normal circumstances," Rohani said on January 11, adding that he hoped sanctions could be lifted as soon as "the coming days."
