GENEVA, October 14 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov arrived in Geneva to participate in the negotiations between Iran and the Sixtet of international mediators (five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany) on October 15-16.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and the political directors from the Sixtet states will participate in the meeting over the resolution of the Iranian nuclear dossier.
The previous round of talks was held in Almaty in April. For the past months the presidential administration and the Cabinet have changed in Iran. Tehran is voicing more positive statements over the prospects of dialogue with the international community.
For instance, for the first time Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has set the deadlines at 3-6 months within which an agreement over the Iranian nuclear problem may be reached. “Nuclear weapons are out of place in Iran’s military doctrine,” he pledged.
“The statements of the new Iranian leadership give reasons to believe that we will be able to break the deadlock in this affair,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated.
