Via tweet from Foreign Minister H. Amirabdollahian:
Had a productive conversation with @JosepBorrellF today.
Efforts to reach a good and lasting agreement continue; it is within reach if the United States acts realistically and consistently.
Neither party can determine the final outcome; a joint effort is necessary. Reason must prevail.
I have lost count of the number of encouraging words that have come out of each side of these negotiations. And yet, still disagree. Still, better than non-encouraging words, I guess.
