"It depends on the definition… If we reach an agreement [with the P5+1 group], then we will take certain restrictions [in the nuclear program] for a certain period of time," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told CNN on Thursday. The minister also added that he was not ready to discuss on television the duration of the period and what kind of restrictions Iran was ready to accept.
Another round of negotiations between Tehran and the P5+1 group that includes the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany, finished on Thursday in the Swiss town of Montreux. The European Union described the meeting on Iran's nuclear program in Montreux useful, noting that certain progress had been made, according to a statement by the European External Action Service.
The Iran — P5+1 negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program have taken place since November, 2013 and aim to ensure the peaceful character of Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for lifting the sanctions. Last year, during talks in Vienna in November, negotiations only lead to the deadline for reaching a final agreement to be extended to July 2015.
