GENEVA, November 22, 7:05 /ITAR-TASS/. The present round of talks between Iran and Sextet (five Permanent Members of the UN Security Council and Germany (P5 +1) will resume here on Friday morning with a meeting between Catherine Ashton, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif at 09:00, local time, Michael Mann, press secretary of the European diplomacy chief, told journalists.
On Thursday, Ashton and Zarif had two meetings which continued for a total of five hours. The High Representative then briefed the political directors of the Six on the results of the consultations.
Mann said the P5+1 talks would be continued here as long as is required for making progress. He pointed out that a number of oustanding issues remain unresolved but that the negotiators believed that they would be able to come to term this week in a bid to reach a good agreement.
The EU High Representative's press secretary also told reporters that it is unknown so far whether the Foreign ministers of P5+1 will arrive in Geneva. He said the sanctions regime with regard to the IRI might be reconsidered if there appear clear proofs of a peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear programme.
