Unlimited time given to drafting final Iranian nuclear agreement
Tehran, Iran, Apr. 28
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
"We agreed to give whatever time it takes to expert work as well as work at the political leaders or ministers level," said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif commenting on ongoing negotiations between Tehran and the group P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) on Iran's nuclear program.
He made the remarks after a 100-minute meeting with US State Secretary John Kerry in New York, IRNA news agency reported April 28.
In this session we talked about how to continue the job, he said.
We also conveyed our concern about the debates inside the US, but the secretary of state once again asserted that the US would be faithful to its international commitments regardless of domestic problems.
Recently US senators have been trying to limit Obama administration's authority on the nuclear case. They have even demanded that a prospective deal with Iran would have to be Okayed by the Senate.
"It was agreed in the end that Iran and the group 5+1 would start drafting the final agreement this very week, which will continue into the next week as well," Zarif said.
Iran and the six powers are drafting a final deal by the self-imposed deadline of June 30.
