A member of the nuclear negotiations team has termed 'incorrect' remarks by the lawmaker Mahmoud Nabavian regarding the agreement on discussing Iran's missile capability, IRNA reports.

According to the Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the nuclear negotiator on Saturday rejected the MP's recent statement and said, 'Such remarks are considered within the cases which manufacture threats for the country's national security.'

In the meantime, next round of negotiations between deputy foreign ministers of Iran and the G5+1 (Britain, China, France, UK and US plus Germany) is scheduled to be held in Geneva on December 17.

The Iranian delegation is also to hold bilateral talks on all nuclear-related issues with its G5+1 counterparts including the US delegation.

During the last round of negotiations held in Vienna on November 17-24 at the ministerial level, it was decided to extend the talks for seven months for reaching a general political agreement in four months and outlining the details of the agreement in the remaining three months.

Meanwhile, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov believes “no more than 3 to 4 months needed to reach final agreement.

Iran and the six world powers (the US, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany) can reach a comprehensive agreement before the July deadline, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov underlined on Friday.

'The final nuclear agreement with Iran can be signed within three or four months,' Ryabkov was quoted as saying by Russia Today website.

'We share the opinion that this timeframe is realistic,” Ryabkov added all the same, due to the probable emergence of any unpredictable inconsistencies in the course of the talks.

He noted that Moscow will push for intense talks between the Iran and the Sextet.

“We believe, new extensions will simply be both unnecessary and impossible,” the senior Russian negotiator stressed.

The 10th and last round of negotiations between Iran and the six world powers was held in Vienna from November 18 to 24.

In July, Tehran and the six countries agreed to extend negotiations until November 24 after they failed to reach an agreement on a number of key issues.
