Iran’s response to the EU proposal to salvage the nuclear accord was “reasonable,” the European Union's foreign policy chief said on Monday, adding that he hoped the United States would soon share its own views. 

Iran submitted its formal response last week to what the EU described as a “final” text after some 16 months of EU-mediated indirect talks between Washington and Tehran aimed at reviving the nuclear agreement. Known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the 2015 deal put curbs on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
