TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s foreign minister says Tehran will deliver its “final” proposal later today on talks to revive its 2015 nuclear accord with world powers, after Washington accepted key demands.

“The American side has verbally accepted the two demands” from Iran, says Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, as quoted by state news agency IRNA, without specifying what the demands were.

“We will send our final proposals in writing by midnight,” he adds.

“If our opinion is accepted, we are ready to conclude and announce the accord at a meeting of foreign ministers.”

IRNA said Friday that Iran may accept a final compromise worked out in Vienna to save the landmark 2015 deal, which aimed to curb Iran’s nuclear program in return for sanctions relief.

The deal has been moribund since the 2018 withdrawal of the United States under then president Donald Trump.

The major powers are awaiting Tehran’s response to a proposal submitted on July 26 by EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell.
