Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abd Allahian said today (Monday) that Iran will respond to the final draft of the agreement submitted by the European Union by midnight tonight.
He also said that it is possible to reach a nuclear agreement if the United States agrees to Iran's three remaining demands, Fars news agency reported.
If the United States refuses to show flexibility, more talks will be required, he added.
The spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry, Nasser Kanani, said that there is an opportunity to revive the nuclear agreement with world powers from 2015. The spokesman said that this is possible provided that Iran's red lines are respected.

Last week it was reported that the European Union submitted a "final draft" of a nuclear agreement with Iran.
According to the newspaper "Al Mayadin" close to Hezbollah, a final draft was presented during the negotiations held in Vienna two weeks ago, and now the governments involved must decide what to do about it.
A short time later, Iran's official news agency, IRNA, reported that according to a senior source in the Iranian Foreign Ministry, "we have held intensive talks in Vienna for the past four days on controversial issues."
A spokesman for the US State Department said in response that the United States is ready for a quick conclusion of a deal to revive the nuclear agreement with Iran. This is based on the proposals put forward by the European Union. The spokesman, who maintained anonymity, said: "We'll see if Iran is ready to convert words into actions." The Iranian Foreign Ministry said that in recent contacts there has been progress on several issues.
