TEHRAN, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Iran’s delegation has left for Vienna, where on Tuesday will resume its negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program with the international “Sextet” /five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany/, the IRNA news agency reports.
“We are leaving for Austria’s capital city hoping to achieve full and overwhelming settlement, and signing of a final agreement,” the delegation’s head, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said. “We are resuming the negotiation process on the basis of the action plan reached in Geneva, which offers a six-months’ period for settlement of the problem.”
Iran’s foreign minister stressed the upcoming final agreement should comply with demands of the participating parties. First of all, it should confirm Iran’s “inalienable rights and interests” in the sphere of developing the peaceful nuclear program, and secondly to remove the West’s concerns about a possible military component of the research and work, Zarif said.
Iran’s delegation also features representatives of the country’s Nuclear Energy Organisation. The Sextet’s delegation will include its leader, head of the European diplomacy Katherine Ashton, as well as foreign ministers of the international mediators.
