P5+1, Iran Nuclear Agreement Can Change Situation in Region

The P5+1 group of countries and Iran can reach an agreement on Tehran's nuclear program which will be able to change the situation in the region, Iranian Foreign Minister has stated.

Iranian Delegation Shows Flexibility at Nuclear Talks in Vienna

The Iranian delegation showed flexibility and sensibility during nuclear negotiations in Vienna, Iran's Foreign Minister has said.

Mohammad Zarif stated that his country's delegation came forth with many ideas, and despite everyone having their own viewpoint on the issues of national security, rights and respect, Iranian negotiators had enough flexibility.

The latest round of talks between Iran and the P5+1 group began on November 18 in Vienna. Five UN Security Council permanent members – Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China – and Germany were expected to sign a comprehensive long-term deal with Iran by November 24.

In light of the Western countries' suspicions that Iran was trying to build a nuclear weapon, Tehran has been a target of sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council, as well as the United States, the European Union and several other countries. The Iranian government has denied the allegations and said that its nuclear program was peaceful and developed to meet the country's growing energy needs.
