The Iranian foreign minister says Tehran and P5+1 are very close to finalizing the framework of a final deal.
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday that nuclear talks between Iran and the six world powers are one of the most important issues in the post-Cold War era.
Zarif, who also heads Iran’s nuclear negotiating team, made the remarks while addressing a meeting of university students hosted by Tehran’s Allameh Tabatabaei University. The meeting was dubbed the ‘Nuclear Diplomacy’.
‘We are very close to the framework of a final deal,’ Zarif told the audience in his first speech after the Vienna 8 nuclear talks which ended on November 24 in the Austrian capital with an agreement for extending the talks for another seven months (July 1, 2015).
