The spokesman did not give details to Iranian media, but called the proposal “constructive”.
The international nuclear deal signed with Iran in 2015 has been in the fridge for years. The purpose of the agreement with the United States, China, Russia, France, Germany and the United Kingdom was to impose restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program so that the country cannot develop nuclear weapons. In return, sanctions were lifted against Iran. However, former US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew his country from the agreement in 2018 and re-imposed sanctions. Iran then also began to violate the terms of the agreement, including by enriching more uranium than allowed.
After talks in Vienna in early August, the European Union put forward a compromise proposal to get all parties back on board. Both the US and Iran have already responded to the proposal. European Foreign Policy High Representative Josep Borrell said on Wednesday that he expects negotiations with Iran on the nuclear deal to be successfully concluded “in a few days”.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian also said on the day that the EU text should include “stronger guarantees”.
