Washington, June 25 (MNN) The US said on Friday that “serious differences” still existed vis-à-vis Iran on various issues, but a deal was still a possibility.
“We still have serious differences that have not been bridged, serious differences with Iran over the host of issues, whether it’s the nuclear steps that Iran needs to take to come back into compliance, the sanctions relief that the US will be offering, or the sequence of steps that both sides would be taking,” the US State Department said quoting an unnamed senior official on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) talks.
The official said that the seventh round of JCPOA talks will soon be held to bridge the differences.
“There’s still some very important issues that need to be resolved. By the same token, we wouldn’t be going back for a seventh round if we didn’t think that a deal was possible. It remains possible. It remains our objective, but we’re not there yet, and I’m not going to speculate as to if or when we will get there,” the official added.
