Nuclear negotiations between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (P5+1) will be completed by March 31, says Mohammad Bagher Nobakht, a spokesman for President Hassan Rouhani’s administration.

Nobakht, who's considered close to the president and arguably has a larger role within the administration than the first vice president, was asked by reporters about the significance of the presence of Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, and Hossein Fereydoon, brother and adviser to Rouhani, at the nuclear negotiations in Geneva between Iranian and American officials. “This time in the negotiations, from the viewpoint of time, we are bound to conclude the negotiations by March 31,” Nobakht said. “Of course, not just at the level of general agreements but also on the specifics we have to reach results.”
