Reports of Iran’s Zarif leaving Vienna for consultations in Tehran false

Mohammad Javad Zarif currently remains in Vienna, according to sources.

VIENNA (Sputnik), Daria Chernyshova — Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is not planning to leave the talks on Tehran’s nuclear program in the Austrian capital, several sources confirmed to Sputnik on Saturday amid allegations of Zarif leaving Vienna for consultations in Tehran.

“No, that is absolutely incorrect,” a source in the Iranian Foreign Ministry told Sputnik.

“Zarif is staying in Vienna, at least as for the information we have today,” another source told Sputnik.

Earlier in the day, several media outlets reported that the Iranian foreign minister would leave Vienna for Tehran and return to the Austrian capital only on July 7, the announced deadline for reaching the deal.

World powers in Tehran have until July 7 to reach a deal on ensuring the peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear program in exchange for easing of international economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
