VIENNA, July 13. /TASS/. Arms embargo against Iran may be maintained for two years, a Western diplomatic source told TASS on Monday.
"Yes, I can confirm that compromise on this issue is possible," the source said. "However, it is most likely that the [arms] embargo will be maintained for two years," he added.
The source also noted that future arms supplies to Iran may be "monitored by a special commission."
Another source told TASS earlier that Iran will agree to maintaining arms embargo "for only six months after the deal is struck."
TASS reported that the US delegation insisted on keeping embargo in place for eight years. Representatives of China, in turn, proposed to consider maintaining the embargo for two years.
