Lavrov: Russia, US determined to do their best to agree on Iran’s nuclear program on time

BEIJING, November 8 (RIA Novosti) – Russia and the United States are determined to do their best to reach an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program before November 24, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday after the bilateral meeting with the US Secretary of State John Kerry on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing.

“We have a mutual disposition, with the Americans as well, to do everything possible in order to meet this deadline,” Lavrov said.

“‘Six’ international mediators (US, UK, France, Germany, Russia and China) and Iran are holding talks to elaborate a system of guarantees of the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for a full gradual removal of international sanctions against the country. And such an agreement between parties should be worked out until November 24,” Lavrov added.
