Iran, G5+1 to resume nuclear talks on July 2

VIENNA (Tasnim) – Nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers enter the fifth and the final day in the Austrian capital of Vienna with the two sides having agreed to hold a new round of talks in less than two weeks on July 2.

While Tehran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) continue discussions in the Austrian capital of Vienna over Iran’s peaceful nuclear program on Friday, they have decided to hold the next round of talks on July 2.

Iran’s senior nuclear negotiator Seyed Abbas Araqchi and deputy foreign minister Majid Takhtravanchi will hold a meeting with Helga Schmid, deputy for EU foreign policy chief Catherin Ashton on Friday.

The two sides have already begun drafting a final deal over the country’s peaceful nuclear program.

The title of the agreement is ‘joint comprehensive plan of action’.

A member of the Iranian delegation said the negotiations are tough but are slowly going ahead.

The five-day negotiations are aimed at drafting a comprehensive deal to resolve the decade-long standoff over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear energy program.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday said the two sides have begun drafting the final agreement titled ‘joint comprehensive plan of action’.

Iran and the six world powers inked an interim deal on Tehran’s nuclear program in Geneva last November, which came into force on January 20. The interim deal (the Joint Plan of Action) stipulates that over the course of six months (July 20), the parties will draw up a comprehensive nuclear deal which will lead to a lifting of the whole sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
