MOSCOW, September 1 (RIA Novosti) - Iran is ready to continue negotiations with the P5+1 group of international mediators to reach a final agreement on the nuclear issue, IRNA news agency reported, citing the country's president Hassan Rouhani.
"We are ready to continue the talks until reaching a final agreement and if the G5+1 intention in the talks is not to pile up pressure on Iran to prevent its scientific and technological progress, the way for agreement is open," Rouhani said at a meeting with the Foreign Minister of Finland Erkki Tuomioja.
Rouhani said that Iran would not accept any discriminatory approach to this issue, which is contrary to the international law, and wants the absolute rights of the country to be met like those of the other members of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
In November 2013, Iran and the so-called P5+1 international mediation group consisting of France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Russia, China and the United States struck a one-year deal, lifting some sanctions and also allowing Tehran to conduct certain nuclear activities in exchange for greater transparency of its nuclear program. November 24, 2014 is the deadline for the group to come up with a long-term comprehensive agreement.
