Russia’s top speaker: Contract in Vienna might be inked in 7 days
(MENAFN) A final agreement on the revitalization of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran's nuclear program might be signed as early as next week if the changes go on in a “favorable” way, Russia’s top speaker in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov informed TASS in an interview televised on Sunday.
"In the event of favorable development of events the final agreement may be reached as early as next week," he added.
"However, it is possible if all countries participating in the Vienna talks agree with the version of the text provided by EU coordinators on August 8. If amendments, objections appear it is difficult to project further developments now. We have to wait for the beginning of next week," he went on.
Ulyanov further said that EU managers have made many developments to the draft that is today on the table.
"This is not an EU text, but the one developed by all participants of the talks that have been underway since last April. As coordinators the EU’s representatives may offer compromise options, which they did. Indeed, the U.S. has apparently agreed, whereas Iran has not yet defined its position on the text, which is why I will not speculate on what issues Tehran may still have," the diplomat clarified.
