End of May is deadline to see EU measures to save nuclear deal after US withdrawal – Iran official

Iran wants European powers to present it with measures by the end of May to compensate it for the US decision to abandon the 2015 nuclear deal, Reuters quoted a senior official as saying on Friday. Britain, China, France, Germany, and Russia, remaining in the agreement, began meetings on Friday for the first time since US President Donald Trump left the pact, and diplomats see limited scope for salvaging it. Tehran will decide within weeks whether to quit the accord, according to the report. “We expect the [economic] package to be given to us by the end of May,” the Iranian official said. “I’m sorry to say that we haven’t [seen] the Plan B yet. The Plan B has just started to be figured out.”
