GENEVA, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - Iran and the sextet of international mediators (five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany) began a round of talks over the resolution of the Iranian nuclear dossier here on Tuesday.
All participants in the negotiations arrived at the Palace of Nations, where the head office of the European branch of the United Nations Organization in Geneva is located. Before the talks the sextet members had a coordinating meeting at a Geneva hotel.
Iran put forth to the sextet of international mediators absolutely “new proposals” for the resolution of the situation over the country’s nuclear program, a source in the Iranian delegation told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. “This is absolutely new proposals and a new plan,” he said. “These proposals should not be linked with what had happened at the previous rounds of talks,” the diplomatic source added. These proposals envisage “the end to the unnecessary crisis and the opening of new horizons,” the source in the Iranian delegation told Itar-Tass.
Tehran hopes to resolve completely with the international community the situation over the country’s nuclear program within a year at most, the diplomatic source confirmed to Itar-Tass. In his words, the updated plan envisages gradual resolution of the problem. “Within six months, a year at most, it is possible to make the problem absolutely not acute and pass it for debates exclusively within the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA),” the source said.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif had a constructive bilateral meeting in Geneva, Ashton’s spokesman Michael Mann said.
