Head of Iran’s delegation of nuclear experts in nuclear talks says difficult issues are remaining for discussion, mehr news agency reported.
Director of Foreign Ministry's Political and International Department Hamid Baeidi Nejad who is leading the delegation of nuclear experts in negotiations talked to Mehr News correspondent in Lausanne, Switzerland on Friday evening.
In response to a question whether striking a deal is likely on Sunday, Baeidi Nejad deemed it possible, "if the other party makes proper political decision. The Islamic Republic has shown enough flexibility in negotiations and now is the other side’s turn to coordinate a final decision among themselves to make a final solution possible as soon as possible.”
Asked if points of difference are less compared to previous round of talks in Lausanne, he replied that "currently, solutions for some issues are reached, but there are still major points of disagreement remaining.”
"Remaining issues of disagreement are difficult ones, otherwise negotiations in this level were not necessary. These topics are so complicated that no agreement can be reached if they are unresolved,” Baeidi Nejad said and added that "research and development (R&D) is one of remaining point of difference.”
To a question about possibility of disagreements remaining in place by upcoming days, Iranian official dubbed the question very hypothetical and asserted that negotiators were not thinking of the issue and that such topics would be raised on last day of talks when there would be no time left. "Currently, we are focused on solving disputes.”
