Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic Hossein Amir Abdollahian noted that Tehran’s proposals on the remaining issues were transmitted to Washington through EU negotiators.

The Iranian and American sides are close to concluding a nuclear deal. This was stated on Sunday by Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian during telephone talks with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

“We are close to an agreement in the negotiations. Our proposals on the remaining issues were passed through the EU negotiators to the Americans, and now the ball is on their side,” the press service of the Iranian Foreign Ministry quoted Abdollahian as saying.

In Vienna, after eight rounds of negotiations to restore the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in its original form and return the United States to this multilateral agreement, a break was taken on March 11 due to external factors. The main reason is the consequences of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine and related sanctions issues. Before that, the Vienna negotiations had reached the finish line and were supposed to be completed by the end of February. The text of the agreement has been agreed and has about 20 pages; it talks about further measures to return to the implementation of the nuclear agreement in its original form.
