Newscast Media STOCKHOLM—Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, on a visit to
Tehran, said he believes a comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran is possible
within six months.

“I’m convinced, if there is goodwill on both sides, a deal is possible within the very
ambitious time frame of six months,” Bildt said. “It’s not going to be easy and it
requires a genuine will for compromises on both sides. But I think the benefits that
are there for both sides are so obvious that everyone should focus minds on actually
achieving it.”

Talking to journalists alongside his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, Bildt
added that it is up to Iran to prove the peaceful nature of its nuclear program.
