Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says a final nuclear deal between Tehran and the P5+1 group is possible within the upcoming deadline for the talks between the two sides, if the six world powers show the necessary political resolve in this regard.
In a meeting with Norwegian Ambassador to Tehran Odyssey Norheim on Monday, President Rouhani said Iran has taken very positive step in the previous rounds of nuclear talks with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.
“If [Iran’s] negotiating partners also show the necessary political resolve, it will be possible to reach a comprehensive agreement within a month,” the Iranian president added, emphasizing that Iran’s nuclear activities are completely peaceful and will remain so in the future.
“Our activities are within the framework of the Non-Proliferation Treaty and are carried out under the supervision and in the presence of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s inspectors,” Rouhani pointed out.
He added that the Iranian nation has the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, noting that a final deal and a win-win strategy would lead to the expansion of Tehran’s ties with all member states of the European Union.
The Norwegian ambassador, who submitted her credentials to President Rouhani, said Oslo recognizes Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear energy and expressed hope the nuclear talks would lead to a comprehensive deal by the November 24 deadline.
She added that Norway is determined to hold close consultation with Iran to solve regional issues and establish stability in the region.
