TEHRAN, May 12. /TASS/. Iran and the Sextet (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) may reach a final deal on the Iranian nuclear programme before the due date of July 1, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi told Press TV upon arrival in the Austrian capital city of Vienna on Tuesday to continue talks on the nuclear deal.
There are still many gaps and disagreements between the two sides, he said.
The negotiators are trying to reach "a single agreed text," Araqchi said, adding, "We think that we can do that even before the deadline."
In response to a question about the previous round of negotiations in New York, Araqchi said, "What we achieved in New York was the first draft of the whole package."
"Now, we have a written text, although we still have lots of brackets, which represent the differences we have," he added.
He further noted that the talks in Vienna are aimed at reducing the "number of brackets" and "cleaning" the text as much as possible.
The high-ranking Iranian official also said one of the most significant issues under discussion in Vienna will be the lifting of sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear program.
"All economic and financial sanctions should be terminated on the day that we start to implement the final deal," Araqchi said, noting that there will be no "phased" sanctions removal, Press TV reports.
