` Rouhani Looking for Agreement by End of July on Curbing its Nuclear Program ‘

#AceWorldNews – TEHRAN – May 22 – Iran’s president said Thursday an agreement by July on curbing its nuclear program is “very likely” despite a snag in talks last week.

“It is very likely that we can come to an agreement by the end of July,” President Hassan Rouhani said in Shanghai, China.

Reaching agreement depends on unspecified countries not be giving a chance to “create problems,” AP quoted Rouhani as saying.

The deadline might also be extended, he said.

Talks in Vienna involving Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany stalled last Friday, denting hopes that negotiators could meet a July 20 target date.
