Iran has submitted a new proposal to the European Union to end years of conflict over its nuclear programme. “We have carefully reviewed the US response to the settlement proposal submitted by the European Union and have informed the European Union of our position on it,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser al-Kinani said on Friday.

The spokesman did not give details to Iranian media, but described the proposal as “constructive.”

The international nuclear deal signed with Iran in 2015 has been in the fridge for years. The purpose of the agreement with the United States, China, Russia, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom was to impose restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program so that the country could not develop nuclear weapons. In return, sanctions on Iran were lifted. However, former US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew his country from the agreement in 2018 and reimposed sanctions. Then Iran also began violating the terms of the agreement, including enriching uranium more than is permitted.

After talks in Vienna in early August, the EU submitted a compromise proposal to bring all parties back to the council. Both the United States and Iran have already responded to this proposal. High Representative for European Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, said on Wednesday that he expects negotiations with Iran on the nuclear deal to be successfully concluded “in a few days”.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian also said on Wednesday that the EU text should include “stronger guarantees.”
