Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian confirmed that he had agreed with European Union foreign policy chief Joseph Borrell - during his meeting with him - to take final steps regarding the nuclear agreement.

And he added - in a tweet on Twitter, yesterday, Friday - that the door is open by Iran to conclude an agreement, indicating that "it will not remain so forever."

In a meeting with @JosepBorrellF, we agreed on taking the final steps for the Agreement.

The window is open, but not forever.

Urged a political solution in Ukraine.

Neither Guantanamo & AbuGhraib, nor crimes against women/children in Yemen & Afgh., allow the US to preach others.

Earlier this week, the Iranian minister indicated his country's readiness to complete negotiations and conclude an agreement, provided that "Western countries observe the red lines and texts announced by Iran."

Abdullahian called on those involved in the nuclear agreement to enjoy realism and respect his country's demands in order to reach an agreement in this regard.

Borrell announced that he met Abdullahian last Tuesday, on the sidelines of the regional summit hosted by Jordan, and said, "I held a necessary meeting with the Iranian foreign minister in Jordan, amid deteriorating relations between Iran and the European Union."

Borrell said the two sides agreed to "keep the channels of communication open and revive" the nuclear deal on the basis of the Vienna talks.

This meeting came at a time when the nuclear negotiations between Tehran and the major powers reached a dead end.

Talks aimed at returning to the nuclear deal have stalled since last September, as Western powers accuse Iran of making exaggerated demands, including halting IAEA investigations into its nuclear activities, after it appeared on the horizon that all parties were close to reaching an agreement.
