An outline agreement on the future shape of Iran’s nuclear programme has been reached after marathon talks between the Islamic Republic and six major powers in Switzerland.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said “solutions” had been found after eight days of negotiations in Lausanne.

And Germany – one of the six powers – said agreement on a framework deal had been found.

A comprehensive nuclear accord is meant to be drafted by 30 June.

Iran denies Western claims it is trying to build a nuclear weapon.
