Iran wants Europeans to present economic package by end of May

Iran wants European powers to give it a package of economic measures by the end of the month to compensate for the US withdrawal from their 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers, a senior Iranian official said on Friday.


"We expect the package to be given to us by the end of May," the official told reporters before talks in Vienna with Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia.


He added that Tehran would decide within the next few weeks whether to stay in the accord.


The nations that remain in the Iran nuclear deal meet later today for the first time since US President Donald Trump left the pact, but diplomats see limited scope for salvaging it after Washington vowed to be tougher than ever on Tehran.
