A former Iranian envoy has rejected the idea that falling oil prices will increase pressure on the oil-dependent Iran to soften its negotiating stance at nuclear talks with the major powers, the New York Times reported on Tuesday.

“They (Iranian negotiators) will remain focused on getting a deal, but not any deal,” said Ali Khorram, a former ambassador to China who is close to the negotiating team.

“It is clear for us, we either want a comprehensive deal or no deal at all,” he said, referring to Tehran’s demand to retain its enrichment program while forging a plan to cancel all sanctions.

“I’m sure there is a Plan B if things go differently,” he added.
