TEHRAN, June 16 (Xinhua) -- Iranian negotiating team left Tehran for Vienna on Monday for crucial nuclear talks with the world powers.
Iran will do its best to start drafting a comprehensive nuclear accord in its meeting with P5+1 group (the permanent members of UN Security Council plus Germany), Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad- Javad Zarif, who heads the Iranian delegation, told reporters before leaving Tehran.
Despite "differences of views" over Iran's nuclear issue, it is "possible" for a comprehensive deal between Iran and the world powers before July 20, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday.
The West demands that Iran dramatically lower its uranium enrichment capacity. It has also expressed concerns over Iran's Arak heavy water reactor which might be used for building nuclear weapons. But Iran insists on the "peaceful" nature of its nuclear activities, urging for a complete removal of sanctions.
Fresh round of high-level nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers will start on Monday in the Austrian capital of Vienna.
