Russian deputy FM says no ‘insurmountable obstacles’ to restoring Iran nuke deal

Russia’s deputy foreign minister says he doesn’t see any remaining “insurmountable obstacles” in the talks to restore the 2015 accord limiting Iran’s nuclear program.

“The negotiations have gained momentum. The odds are the work on what can be described as a final document will resume within days. I do not see any insurmountable obstacles on this way, in particular, any special difficulties stemming from the internal situation in Iran ahead of the elections,” Sergei Ryabkov is quoted saying by the TASS news agency.

He adds: “Unresolved issues do exist, but I should not say that there are too many of them. All are very clear. The optimal balance of interests and final formula the participating parties will be able to agree on are to be found.”
