ST.PETERSBURG, November 22, 18:13 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is flying to Geneva to discuss Iran’s nuclear program. He may also meet Lakhdar Brahimi, the United Nations and LAS envoy for Syria, a source at the Russian Foreign Ministry press and information department, told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“Sergei Lavrov is leaving for Geneva to discuss Iran’s nuclear program and possibly meet Lakhdar Brahimi,” the source said.
A full-format round of talks between Iran and a group of six nations has been under way in Geneva for a third day. The sides are discussing how to settle Iran’s nuclear program.
In their previous remarks, the Russian and U.S foreign policy chiefs did not rule out that a ministerial meeting could take place as part of the current round.
The group of six nations is trying to receive guarantees from Iran that its nuclear program has no military purpose and seeks to impose restrictions on its further development.
Iran, in turn, wants to see sweeping sanctions, which are having an extremely negative impact on Iran’s economy, lifted.
