Iran’s indirect talks with the US to revive the 2015 nuclear agreement will soon resume, according to Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, who was speaking at a news conference in Tehran with the head of the EU’s foreign policy.as reported by Reuters.
“We are prepared to resume talks in the coming days. What is important for Iran is to fully receive the economic benefits of the 2015 accord,” said Amirabdollahian, adding that he had held a “long but positive meeting” with the European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell.
On the second day of an unannounced visit to the Islamic Republic, Borrell made the announcement following a two-hour discussion with Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.
Borrell said, “We are expected to resume talks in the coming days and break the impasse. It has been three months and we need to accelerate the work. I am very happy about the decision that has been made in Tehran and Washington.”
Amir-Abdollahian confirmed the resumption of the negotiations.
Amir-Abdollahian said, “We have had a long but positive conversation on global cooperation between Iran and the EU.”
“We will try to solve the problems and differences through the negotiations that will resume soon,” he added.
Since 2018, when former US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the deal and started placing severe economic sanctions on Iran nuclear deal has been hanging by a thread.
The administration of incumbent US President Joe Biden has sought to return to the agreement, saying it would be the best path with the Islamic republic.
The negotiations started in April of last year but halted in March due to disagreements between Tehran and Washington, particularly over Iran’s demand that its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps be taken off the US terror list.
