Iran is ready to resume talks on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers under new president Ebrahim Raisi, an EU official said on Saturday, according to AFP.
According to the source, who talked to the news agency on condition of anonymity, the meetings could take place in Vienna from early September.
The senior official said the information received as EU's negotiator on the file, Enrique Mora, attended Raisi's swearing-in in Tehran last Thursday and spoke with the Iranian official designated to take charge of the nuclear talks, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.
Amir-Abdollahian "is supposed to be the new foreign minister" in Raisi's cabinet, but that has not yet been announced, the EU official said.
It was unclear whether the nuclear talks would remain under the responsibility of the Iranian foreign ministry or be taken over by another body, he added.
