TEHRAN - An Iranian diplomat said Friday that the European Union proposals for reviving a 2015 nuclear deal would be acceptable only if the fulfillment of Iran's demands is ensured, according to the official news agency IRNA.

The diplomat said on condition of anonymity that Iran is reviewing the proposals to see if they have "credibility" in meeting Iran's various demands, including resolving political claims about IAEA safeguards, removing sanctions on Iran, and having all sides guaranteed to reach a potential agreement at the end of the nuclear negotiations.

The EU on Monday put forward a "final text" of the draft decision on reviving the nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, while awaiting political decisions from the participants in the Vienna talks.

The talks began in April 2021 in the Austrian capital but were suspended in March because of political differences between Tehran and Washington.

The latest round of talks, which had begun on Thursday following a five-month hiatus, came to an end on Monday.

Iran signed the JCPOA with world powers in July 2015, agreeing to curb its nuclear program in return for the removal of sanctions on the country. However, former US President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the agreement and reimposed unilateral sanctions on Tehran, prompting the latter to drop some of its commitments under the pact.
