Iran's FM optimistic about solution to nuclear issue despite differences.
Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif today expressed optimism about a solution to his country's nuclear issue despite the fact that wide gaps between Tehran and the world powers remain.
The minister emphasized the West has tried to pressure Iran but to no avail. "Talks and pressures cannot be collected," he said.
In the meantime, Iranian senior nuclear negotiator said that Iran and the P5+1 group are working to reach a framework of agreement by the end of March.
Based on the interim Geneva deal or the so-called Joint Plan of Action which was sealed on Nov. 24th, 2013, Tehran would suspend its nuclear program while the West would loosen economic sanctions.
