WASHINGTON, November 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The US considers possible to achieve an agreement between the six world powers (five UN Security Council members plus Germany) and Iran on its nuclear program during the next round of negotiations that will take place in Geneva November 21-22. This confidentially told journalists a US administration representative on Friday.
“I don’t know if we will conclude an agreement,” he said. “I guess it is quite possible, although we will have to discuss complex issues during the talks.”
The source also confirmed that November 20, before the official start of the new round, High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton would meet in Geneva with Javad Zarif, Iran’s Foreign Affairs Minister. On the next day, the talks between Iran and five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany will begin.
The six world powers will be represented by foreign minister deputies. The US delegation will be headed by Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman. It remains unknown if US State Secretary John Kerry would come to Geneva for the talks again.
