GENEVA (Sputnik) – The next meeting of the P5+1 group with Iranian delegation on Tehran’s nuclear program will take place on March 2 in Lausanne, Switzerland, a source familiar with the subject told RIA Novosti Monday.

“The meeting will take place in Lausanne next Monday on the political director level,” the source said.

On Sunday, delegations from Iran and the P5+1 group, comprising the United States, Russia, China, France and Germany convened in Geneva Sunday to hold discussions on Tehran’s nuclear program.The head of Iranian delegation Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said that the negotiations were constructive, but the parties are still far from reaching an agreement.

The UN Security Council and a number of countries have accused Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons. Tehran has repeatedly rejected those claims, stating that its uranium enrichment program is for peaceful purposes only.

Iran and the P5+1 group have held several rounds of talks on Tehran’s nuclear program in recent years with limited results. A long-term agreement has to be reached by July 2015.
