Iran FM says Israel trying to sabotage nuclear talks

Addressing deal on Islamic republic's nuclear program, Iran FM Zarif says 'Statements coming out of Israel indicate they are not interested in finding solution; they've been trying to push for problems'

Iran said there was "every possibility" of a deal at international talks on its nuclear program in Geneva starting on Wednesday, but warned Israel was "trying to torpedo the process".


"On the talks in Geneva, I think there is every possibility for success," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said after meeting his Italian counterpart Emma Bonino in Rome.

"We should engage on the basis of mutual respect and equal footing and on the basis that you cannot dictate a solution," he said.


"I go to Geneva with the determination to come out with an agreement at the end of this round," he said, adding: "I am willing to accept serious progress instead of an agreement but I think that with the political will we can reach an agreement."


But he said Israel was trying to sabotage the talks.


"Statements coming out of Israel indicate they are not interested in finding solution, they've been trying to push for problems," he said.


"They have been trying so hard to torpedo the process... Why is it they do not want this result?" he said.
