China offers suggestions on Iran nuclear program, hopes for agreement

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi does not rule out the possibility of Iranian program talks extension.

VIENNA, November 24 (Sputnik) – China hopes to reach a comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear program and has brought its own suggestions to the table, but more time may be needed because of technical difficulties in reaching the agreement, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Monday.

“We hope to reach a full comprehensive agreement that will not only allow the Iranian people to live better, but will also keep peace in the region,” Wang said.

Wang said that there are many technical difficulties in reaching an agreement, but two variants are on the table for discussion.“One of the variants is that the foreign ministers are able to conclude some sort of an agreement. The second variant is that more time may be needed because of technical difficulties,” Wang said.

“If we don’t have enough time, then we may look at extending the talks,” he said.

Wang added that China has brought its own suggestions on key issues of Iran’s nuclear program, but all the negotiators “had the political will to reach a comprehensive agreement.”

The final round of talks on the Iranian nuclear program between Tehran and the P5+1group of international negotiators comprising Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China and Germany, began in Vienna Tuesday.
