Iran will only sign a final nuclear deal if economic sanctions against the nation are removed on the first day of its implementation, Iran’s President said Thursday.
Six world powers and Iran reached a preliminary deal last week that aims to limit the latter’s nuclear program in exchange for lifting economic sanctions.
The United States, however, has stressed that if a final deal is reached with Iran, the removal of any sanctions will come in phases.
But work on the deal isn’t finished.
Negotiators from the United States, Iran, China, Germany, France, Britain and Russia have until June 30 to come up with a final deal.
