Hans Blix, former chief of the UN nuclear watchdog, said he was cautious about the chances of a final deal being clinched between Iran and major world powers aimed at reining in Tehran’s nuclear program.
Following more than a decade of brinkmanship, eight days of marathon talks in Lausanne this month ended with an outline deal to scale back Iran’s program for at least a decade.
The tentative agreement clears the way for negotiations on a final deal, which has to be reached by June 30, that should allay Western fears Iran is seeking to build an atomic bomb and in return remove crippling economic sanctions on Iran.
Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes and denies any ambition to develop a nuclear bomb.
Blix, who headed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from 1981 to 1997, said there were still a lot of “loose ends” to be tied up.
