On Friday, a senior European Union official said that talks to bring Tehran back into agreement with a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, commonly known as the Iran Nuclear Accord, are reaching an end; however, it isn’t apparent if they’ll result in a deal between the parties.
On May 8, 2018, Donald John Trump, the former US President, withdrew from the 2015 Iran Nuclear Pact, isolating America from its Allies in the West and causing uncertainty before a risky nuclear talk with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. At the time, the then-President called the agreement too soft on Tehran and reinstated severe sanctions, stimulating Iran to breach atomic limits in the accord.
According to the official, they’ve made much progress in the talks. They’ve had a round of proximity talks in Qatar, but they yielded no outcomes, and the reason is quite evident because they’ve discussed everything that was on the table.

Talks’ Time and Place will be Announced Soon
The EU official added they could be more accurate on some particulars that’re still undecided. They’re awaiting some points from Iran and what the US has to express. He doesn’t realize if it’s the end of the process, but the termination of the talks.
Furthermore, Catherine Colonna, France’s Foreign Affairs of France, said recently that they’re only a few weeks left to restore the agreement, and it was up to Tehran to select whether to endorse what had been discussed. And America says Tehran has put on demands unrelated unconnected to negotiations on its atomic program and had made staggering progress in enriching Uranium.
According to the officials, under the JCPOA, Tehran restricted its undecided enrichment program, a potential course to nukes though Iranian nuclear negotiators say it tries to pursue only civilian atomic energy, as compensation for removing sanctions.
Earlier in the week, Tehran said that it keeps holding negotiations to revive Iran’s deal with world powers, as European states keep on notifying that time to save the landmark 2015 Iran pact is limited. During a press briefing on July 13, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Nasser Kenani, said they’d announce later the time and place to continue the indirect negotiations with America.
