Borrell reported that he had spoken with the new Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian at the UN General Assembly and that the European External Action Service team had met with the negotiation team in Tehran. He dispelled rumours that there was going to be meeting in Thursday this week.
