Iranian FM not disappointed after nuclear deal falls through
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said he was not disappointed that there was no agreement early Sunday on an initial set of confidence-building measures toward a solution in the dispute over Tehran's nuclear programme, dpa reported.
Zarif steered clear of any criticism of France, which had insisted as part of a deal that Iran stop constructing a plutonium-producing reactor.
"I think we expect all different members of the E3+3 to have their views," he said, referring to the countries that he negotiated with: Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia and the United States.
"I am not disappointed at all," Zarif said, adding that he was hoping for a deal at the next round of talks slated for November 20.
