TEHRAN, October 23. /TASS/. The Iranian nuclear program deal may be concluded on time, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told a news conference late on Wednesday.
He said the negotiations with the six world powers (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) are on the right track, so the chances to reach the agreement by November 24 are good.
Iran’s IRNA news agency said on Thursday that Rouhani admitted that the negotiations were “not easy, but initial experiences indicate that we can have a successful agreement.”
Deadline for the nuclear agreement between Iran and the six powers expires on November 24, 2014.
The president said Iran needed better relations with the world for economic development. Rouhani said his government had plans to strengthen economic relations with the neighboring states and a number of world powers, which could be done even under sanctions.
