After deadlocked negotiations in Vienna over Iran Nuclear Deal, EU diplomat Enrique Mora traveled to Iran. There are many reports that there are now new hopes for the talks between Iran and the other JCPOA partners.

On Friday, G7 foreign ministers in Germany were surprised by the news that the Vienna nuclear talks with Iran had been restored: EU coordinator Enrique Mora's visit to Tehran had gone "better than expected", and "the prospect of a final agreement" was in sight." according to Josep Borrell, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, as reported by AFP.

As reported by, Josep Borrell, EU foreign policy chief, has examined a scenario where the designation on the IRGC would be lifted but kept in place on other parts of the organization, which has several arms and sprawling business empires.

Currently, Iranian Revolutionary Guards are designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. and some Western countries. The IRGC is often included in terror and security threat lists.

Tehran requested that the United States remove the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) from the U.S. list of terrorist organizations. It was only President Donald Trump who had them added to the list in 2019.

The Tehran Times reports that Iran's deputy foreign minister, Ali Bagheri Kani, and lead nuclear negotiator is prepared for resuming negotiations to remove sanctions and knows what plans the other side has.

Ali Bagheri Kani emphasized, that it has thwarted the enemy's trick of stopping the train of progress and the national comprehensive development by aligning strategic policy to neutralize sanctions with the smart initiative to lift sanctions.

AFP reported, that Mora said Tehran had given him a sufficiently positive response to allow the continuation of talks, which have been paused for two months. He did not specify how the previous sticking point might be resolved.

A conclusion of the new Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the agreement originally reached in 2015 is called, could be an important step for nuclear security in the World and a more stable middle east.
