Thursday, 14 October 2021 (YJC)_ EU and Iranian officials meeting in Tehran failed to agree to a timeline for the resumption of JCPOA talks.

EU and Iran divided on timeline for restarting nuclear deal talks with USEU and Iranian officials meeting in Tehran failed to agree to a timeline for the resumption of nuclear deal negotiations with the US, but the two sides will sit down for further consultations in Brussels in the coming days.

Enrique Mora has convened six round of talks in Vienna on reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, but the negotiations have been on hold since the Iranian presidential vote in June that led to the election of Ebrahim Raisi.

The negotiations brought US and Iranian officials to Vienna but no direct meeting took place between the two sides. Neither was there any direct Iranian engagement with the remaining parties to the agreement – Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia.

EU spokesman Peter Stano said the trip to Tehran by Mr Mora, who coordinated the 2015 deal, underlined the "urgency of resuming discussions".

"We are awaiting the Iranians' response."

The EU's foreign affairs representative, Mr Stano said, was in the US on a parallel mission.

"Josep Borrell is for his part in Washington where he is meeting with his American counterpart Antony Blinken over the Iranian nuclear accord," he said.

"We shall see the outcome of these discussions."
