EU foreign policy chief in a tweet on Tuesday said that reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is still possible.

Iran PressEurope: "Spoke again with Iranian Foreign Minister @Amirabdolahian," Josep Borrell wrote on his Twitter account on Tuesday.

"If we want to conclude an agreement, decisions are needed now," he added. 

"This is still possible, but the political space to revive the #JCPOA may narrow soon," the EU foreign policy chief noted.

Diplomatic efforts to reach a comprehensive, long-term, and proper solution to the Iranian nuclear issue culminated in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) concluded on 14 July 2015 by China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, the High Representative of the European Union (the E3/EU+3) and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

On 20 July 2015, the Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2231 endorsing the JCPOA.

Iran has fulfilled its obligations under the nuclear deal and never left the negotiating table despite the unlawful withdrawal of the United States from the JCPOA.

Iran initiated the counter-steps in 2019, after observing a year of strategic patience in the face of the US's withdrawal from JCPOA, and its re-introduction of the sanctions that the agreement had lifted.
