France urges Iran to use EU visit to try and conclude nuclear deal


Paris (Reuters) – France on Friday urged Iran to take advantage of a visit by European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell to try and conclude a nuclear deal, while it remained possible.

“We are ready to reach a conclusion on this deal and we urge Iran to take advantage of this diplomatic opportunity to conclude it now, while it still remains possible,” said a statement from the French foreign affairs ministry.

EU politician Borrell will visit Iran from Friday to Saturday to try to urge Tehran to seal an agreement to revive the nuclear deal with world powers signed in 2015, which the United States withdrew from but is now seeking to save.
