Iran, Sextet to resume expert talks in Vienna

The next round of expert level talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany will resume next week in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

The two-day negotiations between representatives from Iran and the Sextet – Britain, China, France, Russia and the US plus Germany – will be held from December 9-10 in Vienna.

Director General of the Political and Legal Affairs in the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Hamid Baeidinejad, will lead the Iranian delegation.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said earlier that representatives from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will also attend the talks to supervise the negotiations.

AEOI Chief Ali Akbar Salehi and the IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano signed a joint statement in Tehran on November 12 on a roadmap for more cooperation on outstanding nuclear issues.

Under the deal, Iran will, on a voluntary basis, allow IAEA inspectors to visit the Arak heavy water plant and the Gachin uranium mine in Bandar Abbas, in southern Iran.

The IAEA Safeguards Agreement does not require Tehran to authorize IAEA inspection of these sites.
