    The P5+1 and Iran agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program is not “sweeping,” but it is the best compromise for all parties involved, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif said Tuesday.

    VIENNA (Sputnik) – Iran and the P5+1 Group have come to a final agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program after over two weeks of strenuous talks, an Iranian diplomatic source told Sputnik earlier on Tuesday.

    “The agreement with the ‘sextet’ cannot be called sweeping, but it is the best compromise variant for all parties that could be reached today,” Zarif said.

    On Monday, the P5+1 group of international negotiators, including Russia, the United Kingdom, China, France, the United States and Germany, held a ministerial meeting in Vienna to finalize the details of a comprehensive agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program.

    In April, the negotiators reached a framework deal that implies the reduction of Iran's uranium enrichment activity and the number of centrifuges in exchange for a gradual relief of economic sanctions imposed on the country.

    The final agreement was originally due to be signed on June 30, but the deadline has been repeatedly postponed.
