Baku, Azerbaijan, July 8
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
An Iranian diplomat said the Islamic Republic has offered new "constructive" proposals to settle remaining disputes in nuclear negotiations with the P5+1.
The diplomat who is a member of Iran 's nuclear negotiating team also underlined that the Islamic Republic's negotiators are obliged to the country's redlines.
"We will not show any flexibility regarding the change of the
redlines," the source said, adding Tehran 's redlines may not be passed at all.
The Iranian diplomat further said that Tehran 's redlines are not making obstacles against achieving a nuclear deal with the P5+1(the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany), Iran 's ISNA news agency reported July 8.
He added that the Iranian side's new proposals could be decisive in negotiations.
Some disputes including removal of sanctions still remains, meanwhile the main part of the differences between the sides is resolved, the diplomat underlined.
Representatives from Iran and the P5+1 are engaged in intense negotiations in the Austrian capital of Vienna to reach an agreement over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.
The two sides earlier extended their self-imposed end-of-June deadline for a comprehensive deal to July 7. However they decided to extend negotiations for second time till July 10.
