Spain Hopes Final Nuclear Deal Will Be Reached with Iran

MADRID – Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo said on Tuesday that he hopes the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program will be finalized in June, pointing out that all sanctions against Iran must be lifted immediately to ensure Iran’s full commitment.

Garcia-Margallo was speaking at a joint press conference with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who is on an official visit to Spain.

The ministers referred to the framework agreement reached between Iran and select world leaders to limit Iran’s controversial nuclear program in exchange for lifting sanctions.

The preliminary agreement was finalized on April 2 in the Swiss city of Lausanne, while the finalized agreement must be negotiated over the next three months.

“We never considered the sanctions itself as an objective, but rather a measure to reach negotiations that ensure the objectives of the agreement. We will try to develop consensus for the sanctions to disappear, if Iran implemented the measures it has committed itself to,” Garcia-Margallo said.

Spain has been involved in the matter for the past two years as it chairs the committee of monitoring and controlling the enforcement of sanctions against Iran.

For his part, Zarif said that reaching a final agreement requires political will, while he explained that Iran will not accept an agreement that includes sanctions.

Zarif’s visit to Spain is his first to a western country since Iran and G5+1 (the United States, China, France, Britain, Russia, plus Germany) announced the preliminary deal to guide the process of a final agreement on the Iranian nuclear program.
