Iran nuclear talks with Sextet constructive: Germany

German Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Sawsan Chebli has hailed Iran’s latest nuclear negotiations with the Sextet of powers as useful and constructive.

Speaking at a Friday news conference, Chebli told IRNA correspondent that the talks incorporated all the points required for achieving a final solution.

The German Foreign Ministry spokesperson also commented on the planned monthly meetings between Iran Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, saying that the schedule constitutes an intensive program aimed at achieving a final agreement.

Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council — the United States, China, Russia, France and Britain — plus Germany wrapped up their three-day nuclear talks in the Austrian capital, Vienna, on February 20.

The Iranian foreign minister said during the talks both sides came up with a framework for comprehensive negotiations to reach a final agreement.

The talks in Vienna were follow-up to earlier negotiations in the Swiss city of Geneva, which resulted in a landmark interim deal between Iran and the six powers in November 2013. The deal took effect on January 20.

Under the Geneva deal, the six countries undertook to provide Iran with some sanctions relief in exchange for Iran agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities during a six-month period.

The two sides also agreed that no more nuclear-related sanctions would be imposed on Iran within the same timeframe.
