GENEVA, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - Iran is confident that the plan produced to the sextet of international mediators may lead to a breakthrough, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi told reporters on Tuesday.
“The offers we presented may indeed lead to a breakthrough,” he said. “At some point a crisis developed, which could have been avoided, an artificial crisis. Now the sides are looking exactly into how to avoid a conflict,” the top diplomat said.
“The aim of our offers is to put an end to misunderstanding,” Araqchi stressed. “I may say that our partners have taken our offers in all seriousness, which determines a very positive atmosphere,” the diplomat said. “Our offers are balanced, and we consider our plan very realistic,” he added.
“If both sides demonstrate good will, progress may be very close,” he said. “The main conclusion of the morning session is a positive mood towards each other, that is what we saw,” the diplomat added.
