The US has sent its response to the European Union’s latest proposal to revive the multinational accord that limited Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of related economic sanctions, a fresh sign that an agreement may be within reach.

“As you know, we received Iran’s comments on the EU’s proposed final text through the EU,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a statement to reporters on Wednesday. “Our review of those comments has now concluded. We have responded to the EU today.”
