German Foreign Ministry Spokesman Martin Schaefer said his government “is still hopeful” that a lasting nuclear accord with Iran could be reached by the November 24 deadline.
“We are very much hopeful that an agreement could be reached within the next five weeks with Iran,” Schaefer told reporters on Friday.
The German foreign minister spokesman underlined his country’s firm determination to reach a final deal with Iran.
He urged all sides to show flexibility in their positions in a bid to ink a deal as there was still some time left until November 24.
