The European Union's diplomatic chief Josep Borrell said Friday he was "ready" to meet Iran in Brussels as part of efforts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, but warned that "time is pressing."

"I know that the Iranians want to have some kind of previous talks with me as coordinator and with some members of the board of the JCPOA," Borrell told journalists in Washington , referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action as the deal is formally known.
