Iran is determined to end the “manufactured crisis” over its nuclear program and drafting of a final deal with world powers, though hard, is progressing, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Monday.
The remarks, on Zarif’s official Twitter account, came two days after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry denounced what he said was “hysteria” from opponents of an agreement, which is due by June 30.
Zarif, Kerry and other diplomats from Iran and the P5+1 world powers (Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany) say the deal would guarantee Iran’s nuclear activities are peaceful.
“Drafting #IranDeal is moving forward. Hard work, and many brackets, remain. Determined to end this manufactured crisis & open new horizons,” Zarif tweeted.
