VIENNA, July 02, 2:08 /ITAR-TASS/. Iran and the Sextet (five Permanent Members of the UN Security Council, and Germany) are entering the finishing straight to which they have been so zealously approaching throughout the past six months ever since the the provisional plan for joint actions came into effect to monitor Tehran's nuclear program.
Following five rounds of consultations, the political directors of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Sextet countries meet here again on Wednesday to overcome, before the July 20 deadline, the remaining differences, put them on paper, and fix the document which must close the "Iranian nuclear dossier" once and for all. In other words, they must guarantee that Tehran's nuclear program is exclusively of peaceful nature and that Tehran lacks possibility of developing nuclear weapons, and lift all the existing unilateral and international sanctions against Iran.
It is planned that the final round will continue until July 15 at least. If required, the sides would carry on consultations right up to the July 20 target date. The Russian delegation will be led by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Ryabkov.
A diplomatic source close to the talks told Itar-Tass that the political directors would be in session in Vienna until the end of the week and would then, most likely, leave the scene, giving the floor to experts. Later on, they will return here to sum up the results of the final round. Ryabkov pointed out previously that at the stage when it would be necessary "to make complex political decisions", Foreign ministers might also join in the negotiating process.
