Dubai — European Union Foreign Policy Officer Josep Borrell met with Iran's chief diplomat on Saturday, Iran's state television reported.
In early June, the United States said from Iran that Iran would revive the 2015 agreement, which restricted its nuclear program in exchange for relief from economic sanctions, without "external" problems. He said he was waiting for a constructive response.
Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdrahian called on Washington last week, which closed the deal and was devastating to be "realistic" to Tehran during the 2018 Trump administration. Sanctions were imposed.
The EU, coordinating the negotiations, invited ministers to Vienna after 11 months of indirect negotiations between Teheran and President Joe Biden's administration. When sealed, it appeared on the brink of resurrection in March. ..
However, negotiations are stalled, primarily over Tehran's claim that Washington will remove its elite security force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), from the list of US Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs).
Two Iranian and European officials told Reuters prior to Borrell's trip that "two issues, including sanctions issues, have not yet been resolved," Iran. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has commented that it has neither denied nor confirmed.
On Friday, France, a party to the agreement, called on Tehran to take advantage of Borrell's visit to restore the agreement while preserving its potential.
