Iran’s Negotiating Team Defending Country’s Rights: President
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani reiterated that the country’s negotiators have protected and will continue to protect the nation’s rights in the ongoing talks over Tehran’s nuclear energy program.
When the nuclear negotiations lead to the desirable result, the Iranian nation will see how their negotiating team have stood up against world powers, Rouhani said, addressing a Tuesday gathering of university professors and academics.
He went on to say that Iranian nuclear negotiators have well defended the nation’s honor and rights, and will continue to do so in the future.
Iran's nuclear negotiators have been trained in universities and academies, and are using what they have learned to resolve the nuclear issue successfully, Rouhani added.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, US, Britain, France, and Germany) have been negotiating over the past 22 months to end more than a decade of impasse over Tehran's civilian nuclear program once and for all.
They are busy negotiating in Vienna to clinch a comprehensive nuclear deal. Last week, the parties gave themselves an extra days beyond an end-June deadline to nail down details of the long-awaited accord.
Earlier on Monday, a source familiar with the negotiations said the final deadline for the comprehensive accord could fall on late Wednesday or the early hours of Thursday, July 9.
