The European Union’s most senior official mentioned that those responsible for negotiations were at the final stages of a global accord on the Iran nuclear deal.
According to sources, the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borell, emphasized that the Iran nuclear deal was close to a big agreement and is confident that it will be successful.
Borell’s remarks are followed by a lack of advancement for the deal that will bring Obama’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action back to life.
The European Union’s coordinator for negotiations Enrique Mora is leaving for Tehran, where he will try his best to keep the flow of discussions at a continuous pace with the Iranian director of negotiations, Ali Bagheri Kani. During this tour, Mora is also hoping to try to close gaps left during the Vienna Talks on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. His mission is to end this negotiation with a fruitful outcome.
The US has designated the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization. This is why the intercessors are considering the removal of this label, as mentioned by the Wall Street Journal.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated that the current administration’s plan to come back to the Iranian agreement is based solely on the grounds of what’s best for the national security of the United States.
Psaki also added that there is no deal in place yet as they were still in the consultation process with their allies, which includes Israel. She mentioned that the U.S. President Joe Biden will take time to produce a final decision on the basis of ensuring the best outcome for the U.S.
