Araghchi`s comments came as Iran`s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his US counterpart John Kerry were holding crucial talks in Geneva to try and hammer out a historic nuclear deal ahead of a June 30 deadline. Araghchi stated: "Anyway we are continuing our negotiations in the framework of procedures predicted by the Additional Protocol. There isn`t and hasn`t been any agreement yet." "One of the questions we are discussing is how the Additional Protocol should be implemented” The protocol allows for snap inspections of Iran`s nuclear facilities, and if required, of its military sites. But Iran insists that such access should be regulated and must be justified.
