Differences exist among world powers over n-deal: Iran
Tehran – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif Saturday pointed out the existing differences among the world powers over a deal on Iran’s nuclear issue in the ongoing Geneva talks.
“It is unclear whether we will reach an agreement on a draft of the joint statement,” said Zarif. “There are agreements on some of the topics and differences on others.”
Also, “there are different views (over some aspects of the agreement) among the P5+1 countries,” reported Xinhua citing him without elaboration.
“We need our concerns to be addressed in the agreement as well,” and it needs time to work on the final draft, said Zarif, adding that therefore, if the draft is not concluded, talks could continue in the coming days.
Iran and the P5+1 countries — including Britain, China, France, Russia and the US plus Germany — began crucial talks on Iran’s nuclear issue in Geneva Thursday.
Also, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Saturday urged the world’s major powers not to miss the “exceptional opportunity” of a deal with Iran in the ongoing nuclear talks in Geneva.
He said it during a meeting with visiting Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida who arrived here Saturday for talks with senior Iranian officials.
