Bagheri Kani was meeting Enrique Mora, deputy head of the EU’s external action service, in Brussels on Wednesday to discuss the resumption of talks suspended in June after six rounds.

Iran had held talks in Vienna with China, Germany, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and indirectly the United States.

The negotiations aim to resurrect the nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA, under which Iran agreed to limit its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.

Iran stopped complying with the deal after former US President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal in 2018 and imposed a campaign of maximum pressure on Iran with tough new sanctions.

Under the Biden administration, the United States has continually called for Iran’s return to talks. However, Washington said last month it was working on contingency plans if Iran continued to make nuclear progress and did not return to negotiations.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned earlier this month that the window on diplomacy with Tehran was closing. “I’m not going to put a specific date on it, but with each passing day and Iran’s refusal to engage in good faith, the trail is getting shorter,” Blinken said.

In a speech to the United Nations General Assembly in September, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi insisted Iran was not pursuing nuclear weapons, that the United States was at fault for leaving the deal nuclear, and stressed that the United States must meet its obligations under the agreement. first, by lifting the sanctions.
