GENEVA, November 23, 18:33 /ITAR-TASS/. Iran and five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany are coordinating a three-part agreement, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said.
Tehran is hoping for the foreign ministers’ goodwill, Zarif said.
“We’re discussing a three-part agreement. I can assure you that Iran’s right to enrichment will be included in any deal,” the minister said.
“We’re been discussing the details of the agreement for four days. Three phases include common goals, preliminary measures and a conclusion,” Zarif said.
“We are not ready to agree with steps, which would run counter our national interests and rights,” he added.
The arrival of foreign ministers of six countries (five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany) in Geneva proves the governments’ readiness to reach agreement with Tehran, Zarif said.
At the same time, the Iranian minister said no breakthrough had been guaranteed.
“This round of talks is critical. I hope that the parties will be able to reduce disagreements,” Zarif said.
The round of talks, which started on November 20 at the level of political directors, involved the Russian and Chinese foreign ministers, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, British Foreign Secretary William Hague and German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle.
The Iran talks also included Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton.
