Date of next meeting of Iran, P5+1 due in coming days: Russian diplomat

MOSCOW, October 6 (RIA Novosti) – The date of the next round of talks between Iran and the group of six nations negotiating with the Islamic Republic on its controversial nuclear program may be announced within the coming two weeks, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Monday.

“We hope that there will be some clarity [about the meeting] in the coming ten or 14 days. Not just some clarity, but the exact date will be known, as well as how intense the future work will be,” he said.

The Russian diplomat said the full-format meeting would be preceded by consultations between Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and the EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
