JNS.org Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi fielded questions from Israeli reporters in Geneva, saying that an agreement with the West on the Iran nuclear program would “open new horizons.”

“Any agreement reached will open new horizons in [our] relations with all states,” Araqchi told Israel Radio reporter Gideon Kutz. Araqchi also responded with a “yes” when asked whether Israel would be able to live in peace with a deal between the West and Iran.

When asked by a correspondent from Yedioth Ahronoth about whether an agreement would open a new horizon between Iran and Israel, Araqchi said, “It’s completely different; it has nothing to do with this negotiation. Any breakthrough in this nuclear issue will open new horizons.”

Later, when the Yedioth Ahronoth correspondent identified herself to the Iranian official to follow up with more questions, Araqchi replied, “You know I can’t do that.”
