“The more the talks continue, the more brackets are added and the more differences arise,” Afkham told reporters in her weekly press briefing.
“Presently, we are at a difficult stage of the talks as it was predictable,” she said, adding the negotiators have to sit longer hours at the negotiating table as the self-imposed deadline of June 30 nears.
If an agreement is reached, it will open new chapters in the relations between Iran and other countries, since by the removal of sanctions, better political and economic interaction will be in the sight, she said.
The Islamic republic will enhance its status in the world and in the region by signing a nuclear deal, she added.
Elsewhere, the Iranian spokeswoman said that the country’s negotiators are committed to observe the red lines drawn by Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei for a nuclear deal.
On Tuesday, Khamenei said that the financial and economic sanctions of the United Nations and the western countries against Iran should be lifted immediately after a nuclear agreement is possibly signed.
The Iranian leader repeated his earlier remarks, saying that Iran would not allow “unconventional inspections,” “excessive pressures” or inspections into its military sites to be included in an accord.
Under a nuclear deal, Iran will not accept long-term limitations of ten years on its nuclear program, which the other party is clear about it, he added.
Research and development program in Iran’s nuclear technology should continue during the implementation of the deal, he maintained.
The guidelines of the supreme leader is the road-map for Iran’s foreign policy, including for the nuclear talks, Afkham stressed on Wednesday.
Iran and the P5+1 group countries, namely the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany, agreed on a framework of understanding in early April and set June 30 as a deadline for reaching a final deal, after missing two previous deadlines in June and last November.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarifsaid Monday said that his country is poised to sign a good nuclear deal with the world powers even if it goes beyond the self-imposed deadline. Enditem
