No guarantee of final deal on its nuclear deal: Khamenei 


April 9, Tehran: Supreme Leader if Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says on Thursday that there is no guarantee of a final deal with World powers on its nuclear programme.

Khamenei said, “What has been done so far does not guarantee an agreement, nor its contents, nor even that the negotiations will continue to the end.”

Earlier, President Hassan Rouhani had said Iran would not sign a final deal unless sanctions were lifted – on the first day- of implementation.

Last week, Tehran and the six powers agreed on the framework of a deal to be finalized by the end of June reining in Iran’s nuclear program in return for the lifting of international sanctions.

Khamenei said that, “Everything is in the detail, it may be that the other side, which is unfair, wants to limit our country in the details,” Khamenei said.

He said he had not taken any position until now as there is nothing to take a stance on.
“Officials say that nothing has been done yet and there is nothing binding. I am neither for nor against,” he added.

Under the outline text agreed last week between Iran and the six powers — the United states, Britain, China, France and Russia plus Germany — Iran must significantly reduce its number of centrifuges in exchange for a suspension of sanctions.

The outline was a major breakthrough in a 12-year international crisis over Iran’s nuclear program, although a final deal has yet to be reached.
