MP: Stronger Possibility of A Final Iran Nuclear Deal
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Senior Iranian lawmaker Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Wednesday the possibility has increased that Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) would strike a final deal on Tehran’s nuclear energy program.
“The possibility of nuclear deal between Iran and (Group) 5+1 has increased,” chairman of the Iranian parliament's national security and foreign policy commission told Tasnim.
“If Americans are sincere in their claim about reaching a nuclear agreement with Iran, they should put aside excessive demands and respect the Iranian nation’s rights,” Boroujerdi added.
Given another extension of the Vienna nuclear talks until Friday, the lawmaker said the parties seem to be more determined to clinch a deal.
Iran and the six powers have been negotiating over the past 22 months to end more than a decade of standoff over Tehran's civilian nuclear program once and for all.
The two sides are busy negotiating in the Austrian capital of Vienna to work out the long-awaited deal.
After missing a self-imposed deadline of June 30 and extra days of tight diplomatic meetings afterwards, the parties decided on Tuesday to continue the talks until Friday in the hope of finalizing the accord.
