The Iran and the G5 +1 negotiators refused to reveal the details of the potential transaction, which is based on an Iranian proposal offered to the six world powers at the last meeting of the month in Geneva. But after some Western media have speculated that the cessation of uranium enrichment activities of Iran is a party to the agreement, Iranian negotiators rejected these reports, saying enrichment is the red line.
Iranian foreign minister said Thursday night that Iran would never compromise on its rights. His remarks were made after its French counterpart Laurent Fabius called Tehran Thursday morning to make certain concessions to make progress in negotiations with world powers as possible.
Islamic Republic of Iran does not many on the right, Zarif said to reporters after a busy day and successful diplomacy in meetings with representatives of six world powers (the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany) in Geneva on Thursday.
Fabius was quoted by AFP as saying in a television interview earlier Thursday that Iran must make some concessions in its nuclear program as required by the world powers in order to make possible for nuclear power to move the talks forward.

also Araqchi said Friday the much awaited agreement on the settlement of the Iran-West nuclear crisis would not include a work stoppage of enrichment Iran, although he has said the size and shape of the enrichment Iran could be affected in the final agreement.
Araqchi stated that text of the expected agreement will include all three sections of the Plan proposed by Iran in which the ultimate goal and the elements of the first and last steps must be clearly marked, including confidence-building measures.
Once that agreement is reached on the text of the agreement, the first phase will start, and if the text of the final statement is finalized, Zarif and Ashton will hold a joint press conference, he said.
Araqchi stressed that the final declaration, which will be the basis of the agreement include confidence-building measures by both parties.
The enrichment is one of the principles of the nation Iran and human rights, and Iran will not give up its rights, but we are willing to negotiate on the size, shape and dimensions of enrichment, he added.
Up to Thursday night, Zarif and Ashton and some experts from the seven parties to the talks were scheduled to meet for a final meeting in Geneva on Friday. But plans suddenly changed today, and French Foreign Affairs Minister Laurent Fabius, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Foreign Secretary William Hague and German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle rushed to Geneva today for join the negotiations. Their unexpected presence in the talks has fueled speculation that an agreement is in preparation.
Araqchi told FNA on Thursday night as the compilation of a written text is a tedious, long and hard process and consensus is necessary for every word of it.
