BERLIN, November 24, 14:28 /ITAR-TASS/. The agreement between the Sextet and Iran achieved at the negotiations on the Iranian nuclear programme in Geneva marks a turning point in the efforts to settle the conflict around the Islamic Republic’s nuclear programme, Germany’s Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said in a statement, which was published on Sunday.
“We have made another step forward towards the objective not to allow Iran’s nuclear armament,” he said. “After ten years of negotiations, silence and confrontation we have achieved today for the first time a political unanimity regarding the first important steps /along the way to settle the conflict/.”
Several coming months should be used “to structure mutual trust.”
“Of priority importance will be transparent and liable for inspections implementation of the deal and soonest continuation of the negotiations in order to come to a final decision,” the foreign minister said. “We are ready for it, and expect the Iranian leaders to follow suit.”
On Sunday, the Sextet and Iran achieved an agreement and approved an action plan aimed at lifting the tension around Tehran’s nuclear programme. The document’s term is six months. Its aim is to offer an overwhelming solution for the nuclear problem and under it Iran will cut its nuclear programme in exchange to a major easing of the sanctions regime.
