London, IRNA -- EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell in a tweet on Tuesday said that reviving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is still possible.
"Spoke again with Iranian Foreign Minister @Amirabdolahian," Borrell wrote on his Twitter account on Tuesday.
He added that "if we want to conclude an agreement, decisions are needed now".
"This is still possible, but the political space to revive the #JCPOA may narrow soon," he noted.
The eighth round of JCPOA talks started in Vienna on December 6, 2021. The talks mainly focus on the removal of anti-Iran sanctions and resolving some critical issues.
Despite significant progress in the negotiations, a number of important issues still remain unresolved and a final agreement seems out of reach as making the final decisions requires political decisions by western parties, especially Washington.
