Iran and the six world powers have wrapped up their expert-level negotiations at the United Nations office in the Austrian capital, Vienna, over issues regarding Tehran’s nuclear energy program.

The representatives of both sides, including nuclear, scientific and sanctions experts, ended their second day of closed-door negotiations on Thursday after they discussed their reciprocal proposals in detail.

Iran’s seven-member team of experts was led by Hamid Ba’eedinejad, the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s director general for political affairs.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for International and Legal Affairs Abbas Araqchi said on Sunday that experts from Iran’s Oil Ministry, Roads and Urban Development Ministry, and the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade as well as the Central Bank of Iran and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) have attended the talks.

Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – Britain, China, France, Russia and the US – plus Germany held two days of negotiations over Tehran’s nuclear energy program in Geneva, Switzerland, on October 15-16. The two sides agreed to have expert-level talks before meeting again in the Swiss city on November 7-8.
