TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian senior nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi described as 'serious' the atmosphere of negotiations between Iran and G5+1, saying that all sides are firm about settling nuclear issue.

"The climate of talks is serious. All sides are resolved. The disagreements have been less but they are not over yet," he said.

He further added that some texts may be finalized during talks at the level of deputy foreign ministers in a next couple of days.

"All economic sanctions imposed by the US and Europe will be lifted from the day of agreement and our measures would start from the same day."

He also said that "We believe that extending negotiations is not an appropriate option for any of the sides.

"We believe that prolonging the negotiations will not be in favor of talks and we are making our efforts to obtain the (desirable) results in the determined time frame."
