Iran says no guarantee of nuclear deal tonight or tomorrow
Baku, Azerbaijan, July 13
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: There is no guarantee that Iran and world powers will reach a final agreement on Iran's nuclear program tonight or tomorrow, said Iran's senior nuclear negotiator and Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi.
"I cannot promise that the job will be done tonight or tomorrow, but there is hope," IRIB quoted Araqchi as saying on July 13.
"Negotiations have reached breathtaking stages. Some problems still remain. It cannot be said that an agreement has reached until the problems are not resolved."
"However, we hope that we can come to a conclusion and receive a point which is accepted by the two sides," he said.
After missing several deadlines, Iran and the P5+1( five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China - plus Germany) are still holding intensive talks in Vienna to iron out the remaining differences and nail down a landmark deal on Tehran's nuclear program.
July 13 is the most recent deadline Iran and the group P5+1 have given themselves.
