Iran says ultimate nuclear deal possible

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani reiterated on Monday that a final nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers is within reach provided that the other side shows political will.
“If the negotiating parties have the necessary political will as well (as Iran) in this regard, achieving the comprehensive agreement will be possible within the next month,” President Rouhani said in a meeting with Norway’s new ambassador to Iran, held in Tehran on Monday.

The Iranian chief executive also underscored that Tehran has so far taken “very positive steps” in the course of nuclear talks with the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany).

Rouhani noted that clinching the long-awaited nuclear deal in the shape of a “win-win approach” will contribute to the enhancement of Iran’s ties with the whole members of the European Union, including Norway.

As regards the mutual cooperation in the international arena, Rouhani said Tehran and Oslo can hold consultations to help settle a range of problems, such as extremism and terrorism.

For her part, the new Norwegian ambassador, Odyssey Norheim, expressed the Scandinavian country’s determination to broaden ties with Iran.

She also stressed that Norway recognizes Iran’s right to enjoy nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, expressing the hope for the final accord on Iran’s nuclear case before a November 24 deadline.

Iran and the six powers are in talks to iron out differences and secure an agreement that would end the West’s 12-year-old standoff on Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program.

On November 24, 2013, Iran and the G5+1 signed an interim nuclear deal in the Swiss city of Geneva.

Based on the interim deal, the world powers agreed to suspend some non-essential sanctions and impose no new nuclear-related bans in return for Tehran’s decision to freeze parts of its nuclear activities.

In July, Tehran and the six countries agreed to extend negotiations until November 24 in the hope of clinching a final deal.
