Iran's First Vice President Es'haq Jahangiri has reaffirmed Tehran’s determination to reach a final nuclear agreement with the Sextet of world powers.
Addressing a Monday ceremony in Tehran, Jahangiri criticized those who want the ongoing nuclear talks to end in failure and noted that President Hassan Rouhani’s administration is “determined to bring the [nuclear] dossier to its intended resolution.”
Jahangiri underlined the importance of stability in the international arena to businesses and noted that resolving the nuclear issue through negotiations with the Sextet is one of the key measures of the Rouhani administration in this respect.
“The administration intends to resolve its issues with the world from a position of logic, reasoning and dialogue and this [nuclear] issue will be also resolved,” he said.
Earlier in the day, President Rouhani also expressed optimism over the achievement of a final nuclear deal with the world powers.
Iran and the six world powers wrapped up their latest round of nuclear talks in Vienna on Friday.
Iran says there has been no tangible progress in writing the draft text of a comprehensive agreement over the country’s nuclear energy program.
Earlier on Friday, an official close to the Iranian nuclear negotiating team criticized the West for pursuing unreasonable and “excessive demands” during the talks.
Iran and the six countries have been discussing ways to iron out differences and start drafting a final deal that would end the West’s dispute with Iran over the country’s nuclear energy program.
In November 2013, the two sides signed an interim nuclear deal in the Swiss city of Geneva that came into force on January 20.
