MOSCOW, September 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Iran and the P5+1 group (five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany) can come to agreement on the Iranian nuclear programme before the end of the year, President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday.
Iran is earnestly committed to reaching a consensus and if the other side is committed as firmly, “we can come to agreement”, Rouhani told the Rossiya 24 television.
He urged the negotiation partners to act more resolutely, addressing particularly the United States which, in his opinion, has been dragging its feet more than others even though all parties understand the importance of reaching an agreement as soon as possible.
The interim nuclear deal made on November 24, 2013, called for taking the first step of reciprocal actions to prove good faith in a six-month period to be followed by negotiations for a comprehensive agreement, according to which the Western governments will acknowledge the Iranian nuclear programme as civilian.
The deal was called the first step to be followed by a comprehensive agreement, which, on the one hand, should resolve the international community’s concerns about the Iranian nuclear programme and, on the other hand, remove economic sanctions that slow down Iran’s economic development.
The agreement reached by and between Iran and the P5+1 in Geneva last year became effective on January 20, 2014.
At the previous round of talks held in New York on September 18-26, the sides failed to resolve their disagreements and agreed to continue the consultations so that they could work out the final agreement by November 24.
