Nuclear Compromise Report DeniedNuclear Compromise Report Denied

The foreign ministry denied the report that Iran has proposed a compromise on the mechanism of lifting sanctions in the talks with the major powers on the dispute over its nuclear program.

“The report has no basis in fact,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham said, adding, “Such fabrication of news is aimed at upsetting the atmosphere so that the remaining time (cannot be used) to reach a (nuclear) agreement.”

She added foreign media speculations about the nuclear talks with the major powers are not true and are “politically motivated”.   

Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) are trying to work out a long-term settlement to the nuclear dispute by the self-imposed November 24 deadline.

Reuters reported on Tuesday that in the nuclear talks Iran has said it is no longer demanding a total end to economic sanctions and would accept initially lifting just the latest, most damaging, sanctions.
