European Union Foreign Minister Josep Borrell said on Saturday, during a visit to Tehran, that talks on the Iranian nuclear file will resume in the coming days.
“We would resume talks on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) in the coming days,” Borrell said during a press conference in the Iranian capital, referring to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
For his part, Iranian Foreign Minister Hussein Amir Abdollahian said during the joint press conference with Borrell: “We are ready to resume talks in the coming days. What matters to Iran is to take full advantage of the economic benefits of the 2015 agreement,” he said, noting that he had a “prolonged and positive meeting” with Borrell.
More than a year ago, Iran and the powers still included in the 2015 agreement (France, Britain, Germany, Russia, and China) began talks in Vienna in which the United States, which withdrew unilaterally from the agreement in 2018, indirectly participated in the era of its former president, Donald Trump.
