Sweden's foreign minister, the latest high-level Western diplomat to visit Tehran, said Tuesday that a comprehensive international nuclear agreement with Iran is possible within six months, media reported.The six-month agreement, which took effect January 20, is intended to buy time to negotiate a comprehensive accord that would reassure Western powers that Iran's nuclear programme is entirely peaceful, as Tehran has long maintained.Both the diplomatic breakthrough, and the election of President Hassan Rouhani, a reputed moderate, earlier last year, have led to a diplomatic thaw, with an increasing number of Western envoys and businessmen travelling to Iran.However, Iran and Western countries are still at odds over other issues, including Iran's support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and regional militant groups, as well as its own human rights record.
