EU envoy to visit Iran Thursday amid nuclear talks

14 October 2021


BSS :
The EU envoy charged with coordinating talks on reviving a troubled nuclear deal between Iran and major powers is to visit Tehran on Thursday, the Iranian foreign ministry said.  Enrique Mora's visit "is a follow-up to consultations between the two sides on matters of shared interest, particularl Iran-EU relations, Afghanistan and the nuclear agreement," a ministry statement said.
   The deal, which gave Iran sanctions relief in return for curbs on its nuclear programme, has been on life support since 2018, when then US president Donald Trump unilaterally pulled out and reimposed crippling sanctions.
 Mora's trip to Tehran comes amid mounting pressure from EU countries as well as the United States for a swift resumption of talks on Washington's return to the agreement.  "The message to Iran is unequivocal: return to the negotiating table immediately," German Chancellor Angela Merkel said during a visit to Israel on Sunday. Tehran has been seeking European guarantees that there will be no repetition of Trump's unilateral withdrawal. "The European capitals, including Berlin... must give their clear assurance to the Islamic republic that this time, no party will violate the nuclear deal," foreign ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh told reporters onMonday.
