The European Union expects that “an agreement will be developed” so that the United States can revert to the 2015 nuclear pact signed with Iran in the contact rounds taking place in Vienna, due to the obvious rapprochement between the parties.
The fourth round of the commission examining this agreement is taking place in the Austrian capital. “Good progress” is being made in this, according to Enrique Mora, “number two” for the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell.
Mora, who heads the meetings, said on Twitter that there is “a common thought” on key factors including “what is needed for the United States to return” to a pact she distanced herself from in 2018 as Donald Trump occupied the North American Presidency.
She also sees progress in lifting sanctions against Iran and meeting commitments by the Islamic Republic, which announced in April that it was starting uranium enrichment to 60 percent, raising new suspicions about the supposedly peaceful nature of its nuclear industry .
However, “number two” has qualified itself in statements to the media that “there are still things that need to be worked on” and that, according to the Bloomberg agency, there will be a new meeting next week. “I am sure that there will be a final agreement in the short term,” he said.
