MADRID (Reuters) – Most countries involved in nuclear talks with Iran agree with a European Union proposal that aims to save a 2015 nuclear deal, the EU’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on Tuesday.

“Most of them agree, but I still don’t have the answer from the United States, which I expect during this week,” Borrell said in an interview with national broadcaster TVE.

Borrell said Iran has asked a few adjustments to the EU proposal – which was not made public – that follows 16 months of fitful, indirect U.S.-Iranian talks with the EU shuttling between the parties. He had said on Monday he considered Tehran’s answer was “reasonable”.
