EU official: Iran nuclear talks could resume in September

BRUSSELS — Iran is ready to resume talks over reviving the nuclear deal with world powers under new president Ebrahim Raisi, and meetings could take place in Vienna starting in early September, an EU official says today.

The senior official, speaking on condition of anonymity, says the EU’s negotiator on the file, Enrique Mora, attended Raisi’s swearing-in in Tehran on Thursday and spoke with the Iranian official designated to take charge of the nuclear talks, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

Amir-Abdollahian “is supposed to be the new foreign minister” in Raisi’s cabinet, but that has not yet been announced, the EU official says.

He adds that it’s unclear whether the nuclear talks will remain under the responsibility of the Iranian foreign ministry or be taken over by another body, such as Iran’s National Security Council.
