Zarif leaves Vienna after 7 days of intensive negotiations

Vienna, Nov 25, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and other members of Iranian negotiating team left Vienna on Tuesday after seven days of intensive negotiations with six world powers to put an end to 11 years nuclear dispute.
  The aim of this round of talks in Vienna was to reach a comprehensive deal before a November 24 deadline, what the negotiating parties couldn’t achieve.

However, all the parties involved declared unanimously that nuclear talks made significant progress in Vienna.

Finally, foreign ministers of Iran and the six world powers – widely known as the P5+1 – in a meeting on Tuesday decided to extend the deadline for another 7 months until July 1, 2015.

So, first of all, they agreed that within the next four months, the two sides will focus on reaching a political agreement or a general agreement in other words, what Zarif said can be reached even within a few days. Then they will go into the details of the deal which are technical and legal matters.

Meanwhile, they extended application of the Geneva Accord signed on November 24, 2013 which envisaged formula to unfreeze Iranian frozen assets at foreign banks according to which Iran will receive $700 million every month.
