VIENNA, July 14. /TASS/. Representatives of Iran and six powers continued work on the final agreement all night long, sometimes reaching "a boiling point," a source at the German delegation told TASS on Tuesday.
"This work is very hard, the sides continued arguing all night long. Sometimes the arguments were hot," the source said. "But all should bring results."
"Patience is what united us with journalists during the 19-day marathon in Vienna," the diplomat said. "But 11 years and 19 days are not comparable things, we are waiting for the plenary session."
A European diplomatic source earlier told TASS that Iran and the six world powers had reached a nuclear deal.
"A compromise has been reached on all the issues, in the near future the sides will announce the result," the source said.
"The work overnight to Tuesday, although under great pressure of time, has allowed settling the remaining differences," he said. The deal will be officially sealed by the foreign ministers closer to noon, he added.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif earlier announced that the agreement with six major powers on Tehran's nuclear program will be possibly made on Tuesday, Iran’s Press TV channel reported.
Over the past 11 years of the negotiating process, Iran and six world powers are more than ever close to reaching the deal set to put Tehran’s nuclear program under international control and allow lifting sanctions affecting the economy of the country home to almost 80 million people.
