VIENNA, July 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Talks between Iran and the P5+1 negotiating nations may be extended, but until November 25 at most, a high-ranking Iranian diplomat told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.
“Now it is certainly the best time to attain a final agreement, but negotiating parties have not yet settled all issues,” the diplomat said. “However, achieved progress is not enough to convince both sides to continue talks after a deadline set at July 20.”
“The maximum deadline is November 25, precisely a year later after the Geneva accords were adopted,” the diplomat added.
The diplomat said that some representatives from the Sextet consider the possible extension of negotiations after July 20 helpful.
“We continue our work with the faith that we are moving forward,” he added. “We will make all possible efforts to reach an agreement by July 20, but other options will be considered as well,” the diplomat said.
