    Tehran will not sign the final agreement on its nuclear program reached by the P5+1 group if all sanctions are not lifted, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Tehran will refuse to sign the final agreement on its nuclear program reached by the P5+1 Group if sanctions against Iran are not fully lifted, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Thursday.

    “Iran will not sign the nuclear agreement with the largest powers (P5+1) if all sanctions are not lifted,” Rouhani told Iran’s PressTV.

    The deadline for the final comprehensive agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group, comprising United States, France, the United Kingdom, Russia, China and Germany, is set for June 30.

    Last week, Tehran agreed to cut back its uranium enrichment and decrease the number of centrifuges in the country as part of a framework deal with the P5+1 group after the marathon talks in Switzerland.

    Under the deal, The United Sates, the European Union and the UN Security Council agreed to lift their nuclear-related sanctions following verification by the International Atomic Energy Agency of Tehran's implementation of the agreements.

    Sanctions imposed on Iran, amid allegations that Tehran was trying to hide from from the international community its development of a nuclear weapon, have been in place for years, though Iran reiterated its nuclear energy program is entirely peaceful.
