Tehran, Iran, May 19

By Milad Fashtami - Trend:

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that nuclear negotiations with the P5+1 are difficult.

"Hopefully we will finally reach an agreement since a win-win situation serves the interest of everybody," he said, Iran's ISNA News Agency reported on May 19.

"Iran just pursues peaceful nuclear program," he said, adding that the country doesn't have any intent of lying to the world.

He went on to note that the government will never give up on the nation's nuclear right.

Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the US, China, Russia, France and the UK - plus Germany wrapped up their latest round of the high-level nuclear talks in the Austrian capital Vienna on May 16.

Tehran and the six countries have been discussing ways to iron out differences and start drafting a final deal that would end the West's decade-old dispute with Iran over the country's nuclear energy program.

In November 2013, the two sides signed an interim nuclear deal in the Swiss city of Geneva that came into force on January 20.
