Iranian minister says good news on nuclear deal to be announced today
Baku, Azerbaijan, July 13
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: The good news about the Iran nuclear deal and end of 13-year disputes will be announced today, said Iranian Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi.
"I congratulate the great success of resolving the 13-year nuclear problem to negotiators and to the Iranian nation," Vaezi wrote on his page in Iranian Cloob social network July 13.
Earlier, Vaezi said that he was closer than other cabinet ministers to Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and other foreign ministry employees.
That was while Iran's senior nuclear negotiator and deputy foreign minister Abbas Araqchi said there is no guarantee that Iran and world powers will reach a final agreement on Iran's nuclear program tonight or tomorrow.
"I cannot promise that the job will be done tonight or tomorrow, but there is hope," Araqchi 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.
