German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday she believes there is a chance of closing a deal between Iran and the major powers on Tehran’s nuclear program, Sputnik reported.

“I would like to point out that we have hopeful signals on the Iranian issue. Here the cooperation of states with (UN Security Council) veto, with Germany and Iran has led to a result nonetheless. We have hope for signing an agreement,” Merkel said during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

On April 2, the P5+1, comprising Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, China, France and Germany, and Iran reached a framework for a deal to resolve the 12-year dispute over Tehran’s nuclear work.

A final nuclear agreement has to be worked out by the end of June.
