Setting deadlines in nuclear talks is not a determining factor for Iran
Baku, Azerbaijan, July 8
By Fatih Karimov - Trend:
Setting deadlines in nuclear talks is not a determining factor for Iran, said Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani.
Neither setting deadlines nor agreement or opposition of some regional countries, including Israel, and their media propaganda will not be determining factors for the Islamic Republic, Iran 's IRNA news agency quoted Shamkhani as saying July 8.
Reaching a win-win agreement by Iran and the 5+1 group will be achievable if the U.S. gives up its excessive demands, he said.
Any agreement will be possible only if the other side gives up its attitude of compelling and excessive demand, he said, adding, the only limitation for Iranian negotiators is the observation of legal rights within the framework of the country's red lines.
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has named the deal a test that would give the US the chance to prove trustworthy for further cooperation.
Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has said that the to-be nuclear deal will contribute to sustainable security in the Middle East region.
Iran is in talks with the group P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) over its nuclear program. However, the talks are widely seen as a chance to change the global approach to Iran and Tehran 's stance in regional and global equations.
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.
