VIENNA, October 30 (Itar-Tass) - Experts of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Sextet of international mediators (five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany) and negotiators from Iran will continue the talks over the Iranian nuclear problem on Thursday. Upon the results of the first day of consultations on Wednesday, which were held in this format for the first time, representatives of the delegations refused from communication with journalists.
The specialists of the IAEA and the Sextet pooled their efforts for the first time in the attempts to find responses to disputable issues of the Iranian nuclear programme. Iran’s proposals for putting the nuclear programme under IAEA control are quite concrete and productive, an expert close to the IAEA told Itar-Tass. But the steps on this track should be synchronized with the revision of the whole package of sanctions, including trade sanctions against Iran, he said. Therefore, it was needed to bring all parties to the talks together at one negotiating table, he noted.
In his words, the negotiators will have to prepare concrete proposals to a meeting of the Sextet political directors and Iran in Geneva on November 7-8, which can give the green light to the finalization of the agreements with the IAEA at the talks in Tehran on November 11.
Western partners and Israel suspect Iran that the country uses its peaceful nuclear programme as a cover for creating nuclear weapons. Meanwhile, the regime of work of international experts in the country is strongly restricted. In particular, the IAEA specialists have only partial access to several facilities and they can make conclusions over the works at the nuclear facility in Parchin only by the pictures from the space.
