Iran says nuclear talks in very sensitive stage
Tehran, Iran, June 30
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
The nuclear talks have reached a very sensitive stage and the only deal that the Iranian people would accept is a fair, balanced agreement that preserves national pride and the rights of the Iranian people, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said.
What is needed more than anything else is the opposite side's political will to take the job to an acceptable conclusion, said Zarif on the sidelines of the negotiations in Vienna, IRNA news agency reported June 30.
"If there is to be any agreement, it must include points that both the Western side and we would accept. I believe that the basis for that should be the Lausanne agreement. In that case, it is possible to arrive at a solution."
Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry held a bilateral meeting earlier the day.
Zarif is going to meet his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov later the day.
In the meantime, IAEA Secretary General Yukiya Amano is to travel there to meet the Iranian foreign minister.
Iran and the P5+1(the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) reached framework nuclear deal in the Swiss city of Lausanne on April 2. The sides are negotiating to reach a comprehensive nuclear deal by June 30, but there is not any result yet.
