Arab Paper Says EU's Borrell Will Visit Iran Soon For Nuclear Talks


European Union’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell will “most likely” visit Iran next week to discuss the stalled nuclear talks, an Arab newspaper said Thursday.

Al-Arabiya Al-Jadeed, a London-based publication owned by a Qatari company, quoting “well-informed Iranian sources” tweeted late Thursday that Borrell plans to discuss the revival of Iran nuclear talks stalled since March during his reported trip to Tehran.

Iranian government media and officials have not yet reacted to the report. Some Iranian news websites simply carried the Al-Arabiya Al-Jadeed’s report.

Diplomats were claiming that a draft agreement to return to the 2015 nuclear agreement was almost ready when talks broke up in March on Iranian demands that the US lift terrorism related sanctions imposed on its Revolutionary Guard. The United States has called the demand “extraneous” to the nuclear issue.

Meanwhile, Enrique Mora, Borrell’s deputy, tweeted a photo Thursday of having dinner in Brussels with US Special Envoy for Iran Rob Malley and Borrell.

Mora said in the tweet that the three had “in-depth conversation about JCPOA & regional perspectives in wider Mideast. Malley reiterated firm US commitment to come back to the deal.”
