British Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned Iran on Tuesday that time was running out to salvage a 2015 nuclear accord with major powers.

In a call with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Johnson discussed the ongoing talks on the Iran nuclear deal in Vienna.

“The prime minister said the UK wants to see the negotiations in Vienna lead to full restoration of the JCPoA, but that we need Iran to engage in good faith,” a Downing Street spokesman said. “The diplomatic door is open, but time is running out to reach an agreement.”

Separately, US State Department spokesman Ned Price said on Tuesday that the US sought to build on recent progress in the talks with Iran.

“There was some modest progress in the talks last week,” Price told reporters. “We hope to build on that this week.”
