The visit would aim at resuscitating the 2015 Iran nuclear deal negotiations between Iran and the other signatories to the deal China, Germany, France, Britain, Russia and the U.S. which had stalled since March.

The status of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was a key point of difference between the Iranian government and the U.S., which had designated the IRGC as a terrorist organisation.

A spokesperson for the top EU diplomat confirmed his visit to Tehran and his meeting with the Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian in a bid to break the gridlocked talks.

Borrell wrote on Twitter that “diplomacy was the only way to go back to full implementation of the deal and to reverse current tensions,’’ confirming his visit.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) recently warned that Iran was only a few weeks away from producing the prerequisite materials for a nuclear bomb.

Tehran had repeatedly emphasised that it intended to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes only.

The deal would curtail the Iranian nuclear programme severely, in exchange for the lifting of sanctions on the Iranian economy.

Former U.S. President Donald Trump had exited the deal unilaterally in 2018 and instituted new sanctions on Iran. (
