TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif reiterated that nuclear deal will be defiantly achieved in case G5+1 seeks a 'balanced and honorable agreement.'

'We are seeking an agreement with dignity and we will continue the negotiations. The agreement will be obtained in case the other side seeks a 'balanced and honorable agreement,' he told reporters in Vienna.

He further said that it's now a phase in which the other side should make decision whether it is seeking agreement or pressure.

'We have always reiterated that agreement and pressure cannot come together and they need to choose only one of them.'

Iran and the G5+1 countries -- the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany – have been engaged in crucial nuclear talks in the Austrian capital to nail down a landmark deal over Tehran's nuclear program.

Iran and the six countries missed an initial deadline of June 30 and all parties agreed on a new, July 7. However, the negotiators agreed to extend the deadline until Friday, July 10.
