World Bulletin / News Desk

Russia and China, participants of P5+1 nuclear talks, say that the world powers and Iran are very close to an agreement. 

Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said in Vienna on July 2, "All parties are of the opinion that this matter will be resolved in the coming days."

At the same time Chinese FM Wang Yi notes that there is high possibility to finally have a deal. But added that some final efforts must be made to complete the negotiations successfully, and also said that there are "some important and sensitive issues which no one can shy away from."

Negotiators from Iran, Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United States are working to strike a deal under which Tehran would curb its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

The parties have given themselves until July 7 to reach agreement. The six powers want limits on Iran's nuclear programs that could have a military use. Tehran denies it is pursuing atomic weapons.
