The European Union’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, who is shepherding attempts to save the suspended Iran nuclear deal, says that recent exchanges left him “less confident.”

Borrell says of Iran’s latest response to an EU-drafted text last week, which hardened Tehran’s demands on Washington, “if the purpose is to close the deal quickly, it is not going to help it.”

Borell’s comments come less than a week after he said he was hopeful that a deal could be reached within days.
