(VOVWORLD) - Iran has sent a “constructive” response to US proposals aimed at reviving Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, Iran’s Foreign Ministry said, prompting a less positive impression from the United States.

Meanwhile, the US State Department gave a different assessment, saying they have received Iran’s response through the EU, and adding that they are studying it and will respond through the EU, but unfortunately it is not constructive.

The IRIB report said Iran’s response was sent to EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, who has been coordinating the negotiations. It gave no further details.

After 16 months of indirect talks between Tehran and Washington, Borrell said on Aug. 8 the EU had laid down a final offer to overcome an impasse for the revival of the agreement.

Iran’s foreign minister said on Wednesday that Iran needs stronger guarantees from Washington for the revival of a 2015 nuclear deal, adding that the UN atomic watchdog should drop its “politically motivated probes” of Tehran’s nuclear work.
