NEW YORK, March 22. /TASS/. Iran has not yet made enough concessions needed to reach an agreement on its nuclear programme, US President Barack Obama has said.
"Frankly, they have not yet made the kind of concessions that are I think going to be needed for a final deal to get done. But they have moved, and so there's the possibility," Obama said in an interview with the Huffington Post published Saturday on its website.
Obama said it is early to say whether the sides have reached any preliminary agreement. "Our goal is to get this done in a matter of weeks, not months," he added.
Tehran and Washington are holding a dialogue as part of the negotiation process between Iran and the six world powers (five permanent UN Security Council member-states plus Germany) on reaching a comprehensive agreement on the future of Iran’s nuclear programme.
At a meeting in Vienna in late November 2014, the P5+1 and Tehran agreed to extend the deadline for an agreement in the talks on Iran’s nuclear programme to late June 2015. The main political decisions are expected to be reached by late March.
The talks on Iran’s nuclear programme will resume on March 25 and are to be held in Lausanne or Geneva, in Switzerland.
