A final agreement over the Iran nuclear deal is expected to be reached during the ongoing Vienna talks.
World powers are accelerating the talks before new President-elect Ebrahim Raisi, a conservative, takes office in August.
Raisi’s election has caused alarm in some countries, amid expectations that he would obstruct any future agreement.
However, Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has suggested an agreement might be possible before Raisi takes office in August.
“There is a good possibility that we will reach an agreement before the end of our tenure,” Zarif told Al Jazeera.
“The talks are going on right now as we speak,” Zarif added.
Iran and world leaders have recently resumed talks to revive the 2015 accord which witnessed a setback during Donald Trump’s era.
Joe Biden’s election stirred a new hope for reviving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, or the Iran deal).
