The European Union has no firm timeframe for lifting sanctions on Iran and the move could come soon, the bloc’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said on Monday.

“There is no set date yet. The date is going to be related to the full implementation of all the steps that need to be taken,” she said at a news conference after meeting Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek, Reuters reported.

“I can tell you that my expectation is that this day could come rather soon. The implementation of the agreements is proceeding well.”

In a separate development, Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesperson of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said in an interview with the Persian daily Etemad that the implementation day is only days away.

“We have completed nearly all measures we have committed to under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” Kamalvandi said, calling the deal by its official title.

“Only part of the work on the Arak [reactor] is left, which is expected to be completed shortly … most probably within a period of up to seven days.”
