Nu­clear deal is ‘within reach’

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Pres­i­dent Has­san Rouhani said a fi­nal nu­clear deal is “within reach” as Iran and six world pow­ers face a June 30 dead­line for an agree­ment.

Rouhani, speak­ing at news con­fer­ence Satur­day mark­ing the sec­ond an­niver­sary of his elec­tion, said ne­go­ti­a­tions be­tween Iran and the six-na­tion group— the United States, Rus­sia, China, Bri­tain, France and Ger­many— are mak­ing progress, although gaps still re­main.

Rouhani said Iran will al­low in­spec­tions of its nu­clear fa­cil­i­ties but vowed that the Is­lamist repub­lic won’t al­low its state “se­crets” to be jeop­ar­dized un­der the cover of in­ter­na­tional in­spec­tions.
