Warning that such “difficult decisions don’t become easier over time”, he said: “One way or the other those decisions must be taken very soon”.
BPutin said he was hopeful that Iran and the P5+1 group would soon agree on guarantees for a successful conclusion. Because the president bases all of this on the delusion that an agreement will then cause a new partnership between the United States and Iran in the region. He said these countries were bickering over how and when to remove some sanctions against Tehran.
Zarif said the last-ditch talks between Tehran and the P5+1 group of world powers will likely continue through the weekend, Press TV reported.
On Thursday, Secretary of State John Kerry made it clear that the U.S.is willing to walk away from nuclear talks with Iran.
Negotiators have given themselves until the end of today.
The failure to wrap up the diplomacy by midnight on Friday means that U.S. Congress will now have an extra month-60 days instead of 30-to pick over a final agreement before voting on it. Western and Iranian diplomats have warned that could allow skeptics of the process to galvanize opposition to a deal.
However, Kerry said Washington’s patience was not unlimited. He additionally accused Kerry of creating feedback that have been “a part of America’s psychological warfare towards Iran”.
Western powers have been changing their positions in nuclear talks, a senior Iranian official said late Thursday, saying high-stakes negotiations in Vienna could “go either way”.
Sources involved with the negotiations said red lines laid out last month by Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, have complicated the talks.
Nearly two years after Hassan Rouhani’s election as Iranian president, a ground-breaking deal could see the Islamic Republic’s relations with the West thaw after 35 years in the deep freeze.
Iran has indicated that it is unlikely to begin winding down its nuclear program until sanction relief is provided.
He did not say how much longer the negotiations could continue. Rather than risk having to rip up carefully crafted schedules if a deal comes together, advisers are leaving Obama available to jumpstart a robust sales pitch at home and overseas if negotiators reach an agreement.
But both presidents face scepticism from powerful hardliners at home, making it hard to bridge final differences.
Tehran says a United Nations embargo on conventional arms has nothing to do with the nuclear issues and must be lifted in any deal.
“Not only Iran and talks participants but all of the countries in the region including Arab countries and Israel are interested in this”, Putin said.
“We would not be here continuing to negotiate just for the sake of negotiating”.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius also headed out of Vienna on Friday afternoon and was expected back early Saturday.
But back at the White House, the quest to fulfill one of President Barack Obama’s top foreign policy priorities can seem more like a waiting game.
Diplomats from the world powers met Thursday morning for a little over an hour, as some of the foreign ministers who had left the Austrian capital on Tuesday returned to join the talks.
