The European Union's deputy secretary-general for political affairs posted a picture on Twitter of a meeting between the EU foreign policy chief and the US Special Representative for Iran at a working dinner on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran PressEurope: The US envoy Robert Malley has traveled to Vienna for indirect talks with Iran on the possibility of both sides restarting the JCPOA compliance.

Enrique Mora wrote that he had a working dinner in Brussels with Joseph Borrell and Robert Malley.

Mora continued that they had a detailed discussion about the JCPOA and the regional perspectives in the wider Middle East.

Malley reiterated a firm US commitment to come back to the deal, said the European Union's deputy secretary-general for political affairs.

US President Joe Biden has repeatedly stressed the need to return to the JCPOA and claimed that he would do so as soon as possible. However, after eight rounds of lengthy talks in Vienna between Iran and the P4+1, with the indirect presence of the United States, despite initial optimism about reaching an agreement on the lifting of anti-Iranian sanctions by the United States and the return of Iran to fulfill its JCPOA-related obligations, now there is an atmosphere of doubt and even despair in this regard.

In fact, the United States is trying to throw the ball in Iran's court on the ground of the failure of the Vienna talks and blame Tehran for the current unknown situation. Iran, on the other hand, has repeatedly made its demands clear and unequivocal, and it is Biden's administration that apparently either does not want to or cannot respond positively to these rational demands.

The Biden administration has, in effect, continued the Trump administration's approach to continuing the campaign of maximum pressure on Iran, and while raising demands beyond JCPOA's framework, it basically lacks the will to respond positively to Iran's legitimate. This is exacerbated by the fact that almost all Republican lawmakers and many Democrats have stated their opposition to any agreement with Iran without considering it in Congress.
