Two-day talks on Iran’s nuclear issue involving five permanent UNSC members plus Germany and Tehran have finished in Moscow. Summing up the results, all the parties involved describe this round as the most serious, specific and realistic.
On Tuesday the negotiations lasted for 9 hours, forcing some of the delegates to postpone their departure flights.
EU High Representative Catherine Ashton headed the delegation of 5 permanent members plus Germany, and secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili spoke on behalf of Tehran. The next meeting, according to her, is slated to take place on July 3 in Istanbul, at technical expert level.
At the same time, the EU High Representative noted that the requirements for Tehran remain the same – to stop enriching uranium to 20% level and shut down the nuclear plant.
Talks on the Iranian nuclear issue continued in Moscow for two days.
