    The next round of talks on the Iranian nuclear program will be held around March 15-20, according to a source in Iranian delegation.

    MONTREUX (Sputnik) — The next round of talks on Iran's nuclear program is tentatively scheduled for March 15-20, a source in the Iranian delegation said Wednesday.

    "The next round of talks on the [Iranian] nuclear program will be held around March 15-20," the source told RIA Novosti.

    The source added that Tehran does not see March 24 as a deadline to reach an agreement on the country's nuclear program. The negotiators earlier agreed to work out a political deal by that date.

    "This deadline is not for us, [it is a] deadline for the Americans and the other sides. Nobody should exert pressure on us only because we are approaching a deadline, we have time until the end of June," he said.

    A number of western countries have long suspected Iran of creating a nuclear weapon under the guise of a civilian program, while Tehran stated that its nuclear activities are of a peaceful nature.

    Since November, 2013 Iran and the P5+1 group of international mediators comprising Russia, the United States, China, the United Kingdom, France and Germany have been negotiating a long-term deal. The agreement is expected to ensure the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of sanctions on Iran.

    The deadline for reaching a final agreement was set for this July.
