PoliticsPossibility of returning to Iran nuclear deal ‘shrinking’: Borrell

Brussels (The Times Groupe)- The European Union’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell warned on Saturday that the chances of restoring the Iran nuclear deal are dwindling.

“The likelihood of a deal and return to #JCPOA is diminishing, but we can still do it with an extra effort,” Josep Borrell said on Twitter following a phone call with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

Borrell added that he is available “at any time” in order to facilitate a resolution of the outstanding issues.

In Vienna, marathon talks to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, al1so known as the joint comprehensive plan of action (JCPOA), are currently stalled due to key differences between Tehran and Washington.

Robert Malley, who has led more than a year of indirect talks with Iran, said May 25 that the prospects of reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal are at best “tenuous.”.

In 2018, former US President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled out of the JCPOA.
