Negotiated solution is best way forward for Iran’s nuclear programme: MFA

Following a four-month extension of the deadline for negotiations on Iran's nuclear programme, Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs urges Iran to use the "limited window of opportunity" to "resolve all outstanding issues".

SINGAPORE: A negotiated solution is the best way forward with regards to Iran’s nuclear programme, said a spokesman from Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).

MFA responded on Monday (July 21) to media queries about the four-month extension of the deadline for negotiations between the P5+1 and Iran on the latter’s nuclear programme. The P5+1 includes Germany and the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain.

“A comprehensive agreement that addresses the concerns of the international community over the nature of Iran’s nuclear programme would be in everyone’s interest,” said the MFA spokesman. “We urge Iran to use the limited window of opportunity over the next four months to quickly resolve all outstanding issues with the P5+1.”
