G7 backs Iran-P5+1 efforts for final nuclear deal


The group of seven advanced economies, aka G7, has thrown its support behind efforts by Iran and the P5+1 countries to achieve a final agreement over Tehran’s nuclear program.

At the end of their summit in Germany on Monday, the leaders of the G7 countries issued a statement in which they backed Iran-P5+1 talks aimed at ending the decade-old Western dispute with Tehran over its nuclear program.

“We support the continuous efforts by the E3/EU+3 (P5+1) and Iran to achieve a comprehensive solution by June 30 that ensures the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program,” part of the statement said.

The G7 leaders also urged further cooperation between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over Tehran’s nuclear activities.
