Iran, G5+1 FMs to hold plenary Session on Friday

VIENNA (Tasnim) – The foreign ministers of Iran and six world powers are scheduled to hold a plenary session in the Austrian capital on Friday as part of efforts to finalize the text of a comprehensive deal over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program.

The next round of nuclear negotiations between the foreign ministers of Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) will be held on July 10, a European diplomat involved in the talks was quoted by TASS news agency as saying on Thursday.

The foreign ministers of the European countries would return to Vienna on Thursday, the source added.

Iran and the six powers have been negotiating over the past 22 months to end more than a decade of standoff over Tehran’s civilian nuclear program once and for all.

The two sides are busy negotiating in the Austrian capital of Vienna to work out the long-awaited deal.

After missing a self-imposed deadline of June 30 and extra days of tight diplomatic meetings afterwards, the parties decided on Tuesday to continue the talks until Friday in the hope of finalizing the accord.
