The European Union envoy coordinating talks on reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, Enrique Mora, will visit Tehran on Thursday, the Iranian foreign ministry said.

The “trip will take place on Thursday. It follows consultations between the two sides on issues of mutual interest, including relations between Iran and the Union, Afghanistan and the nuclear accord," ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh told Iranian state media on Tuesday.

Iran’s condition in any talks to rescue the 2015 nuclear deal would be around the lifting of US sanctions, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said on Saturday.

The talks were adjourned in June after hardline cleric Ebrahim Raisi was elected as Iran's president.
