EU diplomacy chief weighs “possible” deal with Iran on nuclear policy

European Union Head of Diplomacy Considers “Possible” Deal with Iran on Nuclear PolicyBrest, France, 14 Jan 2022 (AFP) – European Union (EU) diplomacy chief, Josep Borrell, predicted this Friday that there was a better “mood” in negotiations with Iran regarding the nuclear program, and considered a deal “possible.” “The mood has improved after Christmas. Before Christmas, I was very pessimistic. Now, I think it might be a deal,” Borrell said at a news conference at the end of a meeting of European foreign ministers in Brest, France. Borrell mentioned the possibility that there would be “results” already “in the next few weeks.” deal and make it work,” he said. On the same Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov commented that “there is real progress and a real desire, between Iran and the United States, to understand specific issues.” Le Drian stressed that negotiations were still proceeding “too slowly to achieve a result”. For Le Drian it was important to “accelerate” the dialogue process because of the “urgent” negotiations signed in 2015 between Iran and a group of five powers (the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany).With this agreement, Iran committed to drastic reduction of its nuclear program and in return Western countries would gradually lift the economic sanctions they had adopted against the Tehran government.However, in 2018 the administration of US President Donald Trump suddenly abandoned the treaty and since then the other signatory countries have been desperately trying to k maintain understanding. The parties resumed contact last November, trying to convince the United States to return to the agreement, and Iran to once again comply with the obligations set out in the agreement.
