MOSCOW, November 13 /TASS/. Negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program are not stumbling. The sides are searching for solutions, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“The negotiations are not stumbling; the sides are trying to bring their stances closer and are searching for necessary solutions. The most important thing, in our view, is that the participants in the negotiations have a political will to reach success by the established date of November 24,” the diplomat said.
However, Moscow does not rule out that more time may be needed to reach agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, Lukashevich noted.
He added that during the recent negotiations in Muscat “the Russian side had once again demonstrated a constructive approach; it worked honestly without any closed agenda for the sake of achieving a result.”
“We still believe that the successful outcome of negotiations will contribute to stabilization of regional situation; it will make international relations healthier and will ultimately make it possible to normalize the situation linked to Iran’s nuclear program,” Lukashevich stressed.
