Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has expressed optimism about a final deal between Iran and the major powers over Tehran’s nuclear program, saying a consensus is within reach. “The nuclear talks have been going on for more than 10 years, with intensified talks being held during recent years. I think it’s now fair to say that basic elements of the negotiation are in place,” Wang said on Friday. “I think the time has now come for the Iran nuclear issue to be solved,” Press TV quoted the Chinese minister as saying.  He noted that the negotiators are making concerted efforts to secure a comprehensive agreement before the July 7 deadline. But he added that the negotiating parties cannot shy away from certain important and sensitive issues which have not been settled yet.
