Iran says nuclear deal hinges on US will to lift sanctions

March 2, 2015 14:00

GENEVA - A deal on Iran's nuclear program could be concluded this week if the United States and other Western countries have sufficient political will and agree to remove sanctions, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in Geneva on Monday.

"We are moving forward, we have made some progress since last time and if there is the political will to accept that an agreement and sanctions cannot go together, then we can have an agreement this time," Zarif said, as he prepared for a round of talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday.
