The European Union on Monday played down the prospect of serious talks on Iran's nuclear program outside the framework of negotiations between world powers and Iran in Vienna, with the EU's foreign policy chief saying time was not on Iran's side. A senior EU official said last week Iran was not ready yet to return to actual talks with world powers over reviving its 2015 nuclear program and related US sanctions but could discuss with the EU in Brussels texts from when negotiations ended in June.

Contradictory reports in Iranian media on Sunday had suggested a possible meeting on Thursday in Brussels. After initially suggesting optimism that preparatory talks in the Belgian capital could take place soon, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on Monday evening that there was nothing concrete and definitely no discussions on Thursday.
