The European Union is making a last-ditch attempt to kickstart stalled nuclear talks between Iran and world powers, which have reached an impasse over Iran’s demand that Washington removes the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from the US terror list. Talks between Iran and world powers in Vienna to revive the 2015 nuclear deal have now stalled for over six weeks. However, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell told The Financial Times in an interview published Saturday that the bloc was hoping to find a “middle way” to end the deadlock.

According to the report, Borrell suggested a scenario whereby the designation on the IRGC is generally lifted, but kept in place on some specific parts of the organization. Israeli officials have openly expressed their concern over the removal of the mostly symbolic designation. The report noted that the IRGC has a number of wings as well as widespread business interests.
