Tehran is ready to continue its nuclear developments if an agreement on the Iranian nuclear problem settlement is not concluded with the "Six" international mediators by July 20, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said in Rome on June 13, RIA Novosti reported.
"An alternative scenario that could happen if we fail to reach an agreement, we will continue developing the nuclear program, increase the uranium enrichment to 21 percent and transform a reactor in Arak, which is ready for 90 percent, " he said at the annual meeting of the European Council on Foreign Affairs.
"Little time remains for settlement, but Iran is ready to do everything possible to reach an agreement with the "Six" by July 20," he said.
Araghchi stressed that Tehran is ready to discuss the details and start writing a draft of a future agreement on the settlement, which must be concluded before July 20 at the upcoming round of talks with the "Six" (Russia, USA, Great Britain, France, China, Germany) on June 16.
