Agreement on Iranian nuke program possible if demands are appropriate

The Iranian Foreign Minister hopes to achieve consent with the Western partners regarding the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

MOSCOW, November 18 (Sputnik) – An agreement on Iran’s nuclear program may be reached if there are no “excessive demands” set, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif said Tuesday during the opening session of talks in Vienna, Austria.

“A deal is still possible,” Zarif was quoted by Iranian media as saying. “If, because of excessive demands by the other side, we don’t get a result then the world will understand that the Islamic Republic sought a solution, a compromise and a constructive agreement and that it will not renounce its rights and the greatness of the nation,” Agence France Presse quoted the minister as saying.

In November 2013, the P5+1 group of international mediators agreed to reach a deal with Iran guaranteeing the peaceful nature of its nuclear program by July 2014. The deadline for the agreement was later postponed to November 24, 2014.
