Iran and the P5+1 (five permanent members of the UN Security Council) will decide on July 20 if they are ready to coordinate a final document and if it does make sense to continue the work, Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has said.
Javad Zarif has added the text of the final agreement between Tehran and the P5+1 has been coordinated “by half”.
“There is the text. It is ready by half,” Zarif said on Tuesday.
However, he said, “Serious disagreements remain on major issues.”
“I believe that we’ll succeed in coming to agreement until July 20,” Zarif said on Tuesday.
“I’m sure that there is enough time to come to agreement,” he added.
“Now the parties should take decisions. It is necessary to propose solutions, to compare them and find a correct variant,” Zarif said.
At the same time, he said Iran and the P5+1 had succeeded in “making a serious breakthrough”. “We’ve starting hearing each other in the recent three or four days. This is a big step forward,” Zarif said.
“We insist on Iran’s serious, industrial enrichment program,” Zarif said on Tuesday.
However, he said, “It (the program) should be transparent and be subject to the IAEA verification.
From July 2 Iran and the P5+1 hold talks in Vienna to work out an agreement that will guarantee Iran’s peaceful use of nuclear energy. The parties hope to complete the work on the document by July 20. The participants in the consultations hope that there is a chance to approve a joint comprehensive plan of action despite the existing disagreements.
The P5+1 is a group of countries which in 2006 joined the diplomatic efforts with Iran in regard to its nuclear program. The term refers to the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany, namely the United States, Russia, China, United Kingdom, France, and Germany.
