Senior Iranian Negotiator Optimistic about Cutting Final Deal with World Powers

Politics - Iran’s senior negotiator in talks with the six major world powers Seyed Abbas Araqchi underlined Tehran's determination to enter the next round of talks with firm will, and called on the other side to do the same in order to reach a final and permanent agreement over Tehran's nuclear activities.

Araqchi believed that the new round of Vienna talks between Iran and the 5+1 group (the US, Britain, France, Russia and China plus Germany) will be an opportunity to clinch the final agreement.

He added that the Iran negotiating team had no plan for any bilateral and multilateral meeting with the negotiators.

“We will hold bilateral or trilateral talks in the case we think it is needed,” Araqchi pointed out.

“The first important issue in the negotiations is protecting Iran’s political, economic, and technological independence and dignity,” Araqchi underlined.

Iran and the G5+1 (the five permanent sealed an interim deal in the Swiss city of Geneva on November 24, 2013 to pave the way for the full resolution of the decade-old dispute with Iran over the country’s nuclear standoff with the West. The deal came into force on January 20.

Under the Geneva deal, dubbed the Joint Plan of Action, the six countries undertook to provide Iran with some sanctions relief in exchange for Tehran agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities during a six-month period.

The sixth round of talks between Iran and the G5+1 over a comprehensive final deal is slated for early July, diplomatic sources said.

"Iran and G5+1 will start their next round of talks in Vienna on July 2," an Iranian diplomat told FNA in Vienna.
