Sources privy to the Iranian team of negotiators in the nuclear talks with the world powers denied the reports that Tehran might be willing to scale down the number of centrifuge machines that it wants to keep.

“No agreement has been struck over the issues which are under negotiation,” a source close to the Iranian team told FNA on Saturday, rejecting a report by Al-Monitor which alleged that Iran is willing to reduce the number of its centrifuge machines to 7,000.

Al-Monitor quoted an unnamed Iranian source as saying that Iran might be willing to scale down from 10,000 centrifuges to 7,000, which would entail a breakout period of about six months.

Much will depend on the duration of a deal and how long any restrictions on the Iranian program would remain in place, added the report.
