We've never been closer to a nuclear deal: Iran's Javad Zarif

Dubai: Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Friday Iran and world powers had never been closer to a nuclear deal but that there was no guarantee of success.

In a statement broadcast on Youtube, Zarif added, "I see hope because I see emergence of reason over illusion. I sense that my negotiating partners have recognised that coercion and pressure never lead to lasting solutions but to more conflict and further hostility."
