Borrell: Iran nuclear deal talks in stalemate

BERLIN, Nov 4 (KUNA) -- European Union High Representative Josep Borrell said Friday that the talks on Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, are in a stalemate and called on Iran to stop supplying Russia with drones.
"We insist on Iran to stop providing arms to Russia. Iran denies it, but the Ukrainians have been providing evidence of the use of drones," he told reporters ahead of the G7 foreign ministerial meeting in the German city of Muenster.
"On the JCPOA, the negotiations are at a stalemate. There is nothing new," he said.
Borrell said he has been talking with the Foreign Minister of Iran Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and expressed "the condemnation of the European Union for the crackdown of demonstrators following the killing of Mahsa Amini." "The European Union has taken actions and approved sanctions, also for the issue of Iran delivering drones to be used in the war in Ukraine, which is a violation of the United Nations resolution," he said.
The EU foreign policy chief said "we will continue supporting the demonstrators" in Iran.
The G7 Foreign Affairs Ministers will discuss about the situation in Africa, in Iran and in Central Asia, he added. (end) anj.mb
