Iran threatened on Friday to resume nuclear enrichment "without any limitations" unless sanctions are totally and immediately removed at the end of negotiations, according to an AFP report.
In an interview with TV channel Euronews in Lisbon, foreign minister Javad Zarif said "If we take the path of confrontation, the US and the UN will continue with their sanctions, and Iran will continue with its enrichment program, without any limitations."
Global powers reached a framework agreement for a nuclear deal with Iran on April 2.
They must now resolve a series of technical issues by a June 30 deadline for a final deal, including the steps for lifting sanctions on Iran, and remaining questions over the possible military dimensions of its nuclear program.
Zarif told Euronews that there were discrepancies between the framework agreement and the "fact-sheet" released by the United States to explain what had been decided.
"On the day that we agree we will go to the Security Council and the Security Council will adopt a resolution which will terminate all the previous resolutions and will set the stage for termination of all sanctions. This is very clear, there won’t be phased, there won’t be suspensions, it is very clear in the agreement that we announced." he told Euronews.
He said negotiations were at times difficult because Western powers had "come to believe that sanctions were an asset, were something that they should not relinquish so easily".
"Now we start the difficult part, the difficult path of negotiating and writing the final agreement," said Zarif.
