MP: External Pressures Blocking Western Powers' Deal with Iran

Politics - A senior Iranian parliamentarian said Iran and most of countries in the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) had narrowed down differences to cut a permanent nuclear agreement but they failed due to the pressures and meddling of other actors, including Israel.

Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said that the complexity of the negotiations, pressure of Zionist lobbies and certain regional countries and the US opposition, partly as a result of external pressures, created difficulties in the tenth round of nuclear talks in Vienna.

Boroujerdi, meantime, underlined that during the next few months, Iran can convince the other party to accept its viewpoints.

He also stressed that Tehran will never withdraw from its nuclear rights.

On Monday, Iran and the six world powers (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) adopted a final decision to extend the negotiations process for several months.

“Yes, the decision has been made,” a source said.

Other sources said the talks have been extended until July 10, and the world powers have taken up to release $700 million of Iran's frozen assets on a monthly basis.

The 10th and last round of negotiations between Iran and the six world powers was held in Vienna in a bid to reach a final deal.

In July, Tehran and the six countries agreed to extend the negotiations until November 24 after they failed to reach an agreement on a number of key issues.
