President Hassan Rouhani has said that a nuclear deal is accessible, but the crucial decision should be made by the other party after all issues are resolved.
The president, who was speaking after a visit to a rehab center for the disabled war veterans on Saturday, said that Iran is determined to clinch a [nuclear] deal in line with the country’s redlines and criteria.
Negotiations are proceeding and some differences have been removed, he said, adding that the new common views would serve as a basis to clinch the final deal but there are still some differences.
The president said that the remaining issues could have been resolved in this round of talks, adding that the two sides postponed the meeting for the coming days because they felt they needed more time.
All problems could be resolved, but that the coming days or weeks will be very tough since the final step is somewhat difficult to take, he said.
It is quite natural that negotiations will never satisfy both sides completely because each side should mind their own redlines, he said.
President Rouhani further said that it’s easy to clinch a general deal, but when it comes to details it will be a very tough and complicated job and there will be many problems in the way.
Assuming a win-lose game in the contemporary world is wrong and no world power could be the absolute winner or think of annihilating the other party or trampling upon the rights of others, he said.
Rouhani then expressed hope that nuclear talks would bear fruit and bring blessings for the Iranian people, regional states and the entire world.
President Rouhani said that the nuclear deal will serve international peace, friendship, close relations and economic development of Iran and regional countries.
