The European Union’s foreign policy chief expresses optimism over the prospect of the diplomatic process to restore the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, saying the negotiations are now decisive.

Iran PressEurope: Speaking to the Austrian Kronen Zeitung Daily, top European diplomat Josep Borrell said he had received the US response to a proposed EU-drafted agreement on reviving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and that it was now up to Iran to react, Iranian media cited him as saying.

He said the talks, which are coordinated by the EU, had reached an “important moment,” adding: “This is the last millimeter.”

The process of reviewing the American response to Tehran’s comments about the EU-led draft text would continue “at least until the end of the current [Persian calendar] week,” which ends on Friday," Nournews, a website close to Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) reported.
