SHAFAQNA – ‘This agreement will be reached. In my opinion, we have already crossed the line before which we could have doubted that,’ he said quoted by Interfax news agency on Friday.
Speaking with reporters on the sidelines of the seventh BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) academic forum, he added, ‘I believe there is a high degree of certainty today that this agreement is not only possible, but it will be reached.’
‘I would not forecast any concrete date, but any lengthy extension of these talks is unlikely,’ Ryabkov said.
‘Now we have high confidence that an agreement isn’t just possible, it will definitely come about,’ also RIA Novosti cited him as saying.
On April 2, Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers issued a joint statement after marathon talks in Lausanne calling, among other things, for the removal of UNSC sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Aaccording to the agreement reached between Iran and the six world powers, Zarif said, all the US, EU and UN Security Council sanctions against Iran will be lifted under the final deal.
