Iran's foreign minister says talks on reaching a comprehensive deal on Tehran's nuclear energy program should result in the total removal of all anti-Iran sanctions.
Mohammad Javad Zarif made the remarks during a press conference with visiting Swedish Foreign minister Carl Bildt in Tehran. Zarif says Tehran believes that U-S-led sanctions have been both illegal and counter-productive and did nothing to help solve the problem. Iran's top diplomat noted that the sanctions, which made it difficult for the Iranian companies to purchase even food and medical items, have intensified pessimism among the Iranian people. Bildt also voiced Sweden's support for finding a final and comprehensive solution to Iran's nuclear energy program. He says the issue can be solved within a six-month period it both sides act in good will.
