VIENNA, April 23. /TASS/. There is no risk of a disruption of talks between Iran and the countries united in the P 5+1 format and many problem issues still remain unresolved, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said answering a question from TASS.
"There’s no threat of a disruption and it’s essential now to avoid procrastination and to continue the search for solutions at the same pace we gained in Lausanne, including solutions on the lifting of sanctions and on the UN role in the process, as well as the steps on technical subjects," Ryabkov said.
Russia insists at the talks between the P 5 + 1 countries and Iran on the importance of handling any changes in the mode of sanctions against Iran at the UN Security Council, Ryabkov said.
"Since the case in hand is the sanctions introduced under provisions of Chapter VII of the UN Security Council, any changes in this sphere imply rulings of the Council, be it the imposition of new sanctions, restoration of old ones, or any other operation," he said. "Without a resolution, without voting there can be no resumption of sanctions and that's our firm position."
As TASS reported earlier, there is no unanimity on the issue among the P 5+1 countries.
Political agreements on settling the dispute around the Iranian nuclear programme that were reached at the beginning of the month in Lausanne specify the setting up of a mechanism for resolution of acute outstanding issues but the same document says that if the problem of Iran's notable deflection from its commitments cannot be resolved in this format, the UN Security Council sanctions may come back into force.
However, the negotiating countries did not spell out a detailed procedure for resumption of the sanctions at the talks in Lausanne.
