Zarif: Chance of reaching agreement not everlasting

Tehran, July 22, IRNA – Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said on Tuesday that right to uranium enrichment, Arak heavy water reactor and sanctions are major bones of contention between Iran and G5+1, advising westerners that the chance of reaching agreement is not everlasting.

Speaking to reporters after a closed-door session of Majlis focusing on the last round of talks in Vienna and four-month extension of the Geneva Accord, Zarif said "Our stances on the number of centrifuges are clear and the other party's insistence on the issue is ineffective."

He said as far as talks are concerned, the softness or toughness of the other party in the talks is not important rather it should be understood that as long as no agreement is reached all would strive to maintain their stances.

"The G5+1 has come to the conclusion that it has no chance for good to reach agreement. The negotiating parties do know that the only solution to the nuclear talks is to strike a deal," he added.

Zarif said they observed the pressure on the Iranian people has proved useless and the Iranian nation took part in presidential elections more gloriously than before.

Concluding his remarks, Zarif said if westerners go on based on the Geneva Accord and get assurances of the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear activities, the problem will be solved.
