EU summit: Nuclear negotiations with Iran resume

“We will resume talks on the nuclear deal in the next few days,” Borrell told a news conference after meeting the country’s foreign minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

Amir-Abdollahian confirmed that negotiations on the nuclear deal would continue.

– We have had a long and positive conversation about global cooperation between Iran and the EU, he said.

– We will try to resolve issues and differences of opinion through negotiations which will resume in the near future, added the Iranian Foreign Minister.

Borrell arrived in Tehran on Friday evening, and the visit was not announced in advance

“Diplomacy is the only way to achieve full implementation of the agreement and reverse current tensions,” Borrell tweeted.

In 2018, former President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the nuclear deal, which his successor Joe Biden wanted to revive. Talks about breathing new life into it began in April 2021, but have stalled since March.

In March, Borrell claimed that a new nuclear deal with Iran was just days away, but Russia’s invasion of Ukraine helped prevent this from happening.

The nuclear deal with Iran was negotiated in 2015 by the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France, Germany and the European Union. This goes into effect the following year.
