TEHRAN, May 5. /TASS/. Sanctions against Iran must be removed on the day the final deal on Tehran’s nuclear program comes into effect, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi told the national IRIB TV channel.
"Sanctions must be lifted on the day the final deal comes into force," he said. "While drawing up the text of the comprehensive document on the Iranian nuclear program, the date of its coming into force will be indicated. On the same day all economic and political sanctions against Iran need to be removed," said Iran’s chief negotiator at the talks with the group of six world powers, which comprises the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.
He noted that lifting anti-Iranian sanctions was a key issue during the consultations, adding that a general agreement had been reached and now the negotiators focused on the details of the deal.
Araghchi also said that the process of drawing up the text was progressing "slowly but surely", expressing hope that the agreement would be ready in time. According to him, serious discussions were under way on such issues as the languages and the style of the agreement.
