EU foreign policy chief said - stalled talks on Iran's nuclear program were unblocked

European Union foreign policy chief Joseph Borrell on Friday expressed high hopes that stalled talks on the nuclear program with Iran are expected to reach an agreement soon. Let us tell you that there is a deadlock between Iran and other countries of the world over the talks about Iran's nuclear program. Because the US disagrees with some of Iran's major demands, one of which is Iran's demand that the US remove its paramilitary Revolutionary Guard from the list of terrorist organizations.

The EU's High Representative for Foreign Policy Borrell said

The G-7 meeting of the world's major seven economies was held in Germany on Friday. Let us tell you that the countries of America, Britain, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and Japan are included in the G-7. Speaking during this meeting, the EU's High Representative for Foreign Policy Borrell told that the EU ambassador had gone to Tehran this week to hold talks and the talks there gave hope for betterment on this issue.

"The talks had stalled and now they have been reopened," Borrell told reporters on the sidelines of the G-7 meeting in Germany. He further said, “Talks have been stalled for almost two months due to disagreements over the Revolutionary Guard. Such issues are not resolved in one night, but one can say that talks were disrupted and now they have opened it up. "It means that there is hope of reaching an agreement," Borrell said.

Borrell said a mission by EU envoy Enrique Mora this week to help revive the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers went 'better than expected'.

He said Mora held a two-day meeting with Iran's chief negotiator Ali Bagheri in Tehran this week.

Iran's Foreign Minister Hussein Amir-Abdullahian wrote on Twitter, "Mr. Mora's visit to Tehran and his conversation with my colleague Mr. Bagheri was another opportunity to focus initiatives to resolve the remaining issues." He said the visit is "focused on initiatives" to resolve the remaining issues.

Do you know these things about Anthony Albanese who defeated Scott Morrison? Many challenges will be faced as Prime Minister

Australian voters have pushed for an end to nine years of Liberal rule in favor of a centre-left opposition that has promised strong action on climate change. To form a majority government, parties need a majority of 76 seats. The Labor Party's Anthony Albanese, who won the election, will now be the new Prime Minister of Australia. After the election results were out, Morrison said he would resign as leader of the Liberal Party. He said that he takes responsibility for his party's defeat. The Labor Party currently holds 73 seats, according to the Australian Electoral Commission. Early vote counts showed a strong bias toward Greens candidates and independents, who sought emissions cuts far beyond commitments made by Morrison's coalition.

Who is  Anthony  Albanese 

Albanese is one of Australia's longest-serving politicians and was briefly deputy prime minister under Kevin Rudd in 2013. He has earned a reputation as a defender of free healthcare, an advocate of LGBT rights, a Republican and a diehard rugby league fan. Albanese, 59, had a childhood spent by a single mother with the help of a disability pension. At the age of just 33, he reached Parliament in 1996 by winning the Sydney seat on a Labor Party ticket. In 2007, when Kevin Rudd's Labor Party came to power, Albanese was made Minister of Infrastructure and Transport. Due to internal strife in the party, the Prime Minister was changed and Anthony Albanese became Deputy Prime Minister. But his tenure as Deputy PM lasted only 10 weeks. His party lost in the next election.

 Challenges ahead for Albanese as Prime Minister?

One of Albanese's first priorities as prime minister will be to rebuild relations with foreign leaders, who Morrison says has neglected foreign policy in recent years. China recently signed a military agreement with the Solomon Islands near Australia, China is planning to build its first military base in the Pacific. On Tuesday, Albanians are expected to be in Tokyo for talks with quad members from the United States, India and Japan, where they will discuss priorities for safeguarding free passage in the Indo-Pacific. Voters have turned to the Labor Party over the Liberal Party's inaction on climate change. Marija Taflaga, director of the Australian Politics Study Center at the Australian National University, noted the vote's shift to the Greens.
