The EU's top diplomat announced a pause to the ongoing 8th round of the Vienna sanctions removal talks was needed due to "external factors."

Iran PressEurope: Iran's international nuclear agreement or the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was signed between the country and P5+1 countries (Russia, China, UK, Germany, France, and the US) in 2015, but the US scrapped it on May 18, 2018, re-imposing more sanctions on Iran.

The eighth round of sanctions removal talks, which began in Vienna on December 27, now faces a halt.

In a tweet on Friday, European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell wrote: "As coordinator, I will, with my team, continue to be in touch with all JCPOA participants and the US to overcome the current situation and to close the agreement."
