The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, has called on Iran and the United States to make progress in “the next few days” to accept his final proposal to restore the Iranian nuclear agreement.
Speaking from Prague, where an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers has been held, the head of European diplomacy has indicated that he sees “common ground” and that the text presented takes into account the concerns of Washington and Tehran.
“I hope that in the coming days we will not lose momentum and close the agreement, taking into account the reasonable comments that the two have presented to my text,” he explained, after assessing the contributions of the Americans and Iranians to his offer.
In early August, the EU presented a final document that the participants must sign or reject, after a 16-month process of talks, mainly in Vienna, to revitalize the nuclear agreement, badly damaged since former President Donald Trump’s unilateral decision to leave. in 2018.
The negotiations seek to restore strict limits on Iran’s nuclear activity in exchange for the United States relaxing some of its sanctions on the Persian republic’s economy, including those imposed on its oil exports.
