MOSCOW, June 25. /TASS/. The text of a deal between Iran and six world powers (five permanent UN Security Council members and Germany) has been worked out at around 90%, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS on Thursday.
"I think it is around 90%," Ryabkov said ahead of flying to Vienna for a final round of talks. "But this concerns the amount of the text, not the importance of the issues," the diplomat said.
A comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear programme due to be reached by the end of the current month is expected to guarantee peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear programme and will make it possible to abandon the sanctions.
The document is to set new temporary restrictions and a mechanism for re-imposing the sanctions in case Tehran fails to fulfil its liabilities. The agreement is supposed to be endorsed by a U.N. Security Council resolution that is to call for the implementation of all agreements and cancel the Council’s previous resolutions.
