Zarif, Kerry hold 2nd bilateral meeting in Vienna

Vienna, Nov 23, IRNA – Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry held their second bilateral meeting here on Monday on the seventh day of the 10th round of nuclear talks.
A source close to the Iranian negotiating team said on Sunday after Zarif-Kerry 75-minite talks that the two discussed various scenarios including ways to continue nuclear talks.

The two foreign ministers have also held five trilateral meetings with the EU nuclear coordinator Catherine Ashton since the beginning of the ongoing nuclear talks in Vienna on November 18.

November 24 is set as the deadline for Iran-G5+1 nuclear talks. The Iranian negotiating team said there would be no extension for the talks as the two sides have to focus on reaching a comprehensive agreement to end the decades-long nuclear dispute.

The size of Iran’s enrichment activities, ways to lift anti-Iran sanctions and duration of the deal are major disputed issues in the talks.

According to IRNA correspondent in Vienna there have been positive signs since Sunday.
