Baku, Azerbaijan, May 6
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
The Iranian nuclear team is subject to the country's parliament's decisions, senior Iranian negotiator Abbas Araghchi said.
"Parliament may decide to limit any cooperation and prevent us from signing any agreement. We will move according to the parliament's decision," Iran's Fars news agency quoted Araghchi as saying on May 6.
"We are working to prepare a plan for responding to questions on the Possible Military Dimensions of Iran's Nuclear Program, known as PMD, and also continuing cooperation with the IAEA and the P5+1 group."
He went on to say that the Lausanne statement was a summarized one and a half page report of all that happened. However, the final deal would be over 20 pages with over 50 pages of appendices.
Iran and the P5+1 group (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) will continue talks on Tehran's nuclear program in New York till May 7.
Deputies of the Iranian foreign minister and the EU foreign policy chief are scheduled to continue talks on drafting the agreement from May 12 in Vienna.
Araghchi described the process as difficult, explaining that there'll be many bracketed points of disagreement in the text. He expressed hope that the first draft would come out within the next few days.
In April, Iran and the P5+1 reached a mutual understanding over Tehran's nuclear program. A final deal is due by the end of next month.
