Iran and the European Union have agreed to resume nuclear talks with the United States that have been stalled since March, Al Jazeera reported on Saturday.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and the EU’s Josep Borrell announced this during a news conference following a “long but positive” talk on Saturday that they have agreed that indirect talks between Tehran and Washington to restore their 2015 nuclear accord will restart within days.
Amirabdollahian said that, for Iran, the most important thing is that it can enjoy the full economic benefits that it was promised under the original deal.
Borrell while welcoming the resumption of the talks, said a restored nuclear deal would benefit the region and the world.
The restarted talks will aim at “resolving the last outstanding issues”, he said.
Borrell and his deputy Enrique Mora arrived in Tehran late on Friday and met Amirabdollahian and chief nuclear negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani on Saturday. Borrell was also scheduled to have a meeting with Iran’s security chief Ali Shamkhani later on Saturday.
