Iran to respond to EU's nuclear text by Monday - FM

STORY: "I think that by 12 o'clock tonight, we will submit our final summary of the remaining issues between us (Iran and America) in writing to the European Union coordinator," Amirabdollahian said.

Amirabdollahian said that an agreement could be reached if “America’s response is flexible”. Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani also reiterated the possibility of reviving the 2015 nuclear deal during an earlier news conference with journalists.

“There is an opportunity to reach a nuclear deal if Iran’s red lines are respected,” Kanani said at a news conference in Tehran.

Iran and the United States are struggling to overcome divisions in indirect talks on a revival of the deal while months of negotiations have entered a crucial stage.

The broad outline of the revived deal was essentially agreed in March after 11 months of talks in Vienna.
