Expert-level nuclear talks set for next week: Official

Iran and the P5+1 group are scheduled to hold their next round of expert-level talks in the Austrian capital of Vienna next week, an Iranian nuclear negotiator says.

The talks will be headed by Hamid Ba’eedinejad, the director general for political and international affairs at Iran’s Foreign Ministry, and Stephen Clement, an aide to the European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, the negotiator told ISNA on Saturday.

The meeting will be held simultaneously with the quarterly meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) Board of Governors, the official said.

Ba’eedinejad and Clement previously met last week on the sidelines of a meeting between Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, in Istanbul on May 26.

Iran and the six world powers have been discussing ways to iron out differences and start drafting a final deal that would end the West’s dispute with Iran over the country’s nuclear energy program.

The next round of nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 is scheduled to be held in Vienna from June 16 to 20.
