MOSCOW, July 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia does not fear the situation around Ukraine may affect the negotiations of the Sextet (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) with Iran, and there are chances for an agreement on Iran’s nuclear dossier by July 20, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said in an interview with the Kommersant daily.
“In my opinion, there are no reasons to fear the situation around Ukraine will be a ‘bomb’ under the negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program and would affect the results (of the talks),” he said. “We believe the counterparts from the US, like the EU countries participating in the process, do share the confidence of Russia and China that everyone will benefit from the agreement.”
“We have been participating in the negotiations honestly and creatively. We do not have a hidden agenda,” the deputy foreign minister said. “We are saying openly about what we consider problematic at those negotiations, and at the same time we are saying about how we could assist in reaching mutually acceptable solutions. In other words, we initiate ideas to assist in reaching compromises.”
“The round in June and the other one which began on July 2 are different from the previous ones as there appears certain static energy, which by common effort should be released and which will develop into the energy of progress.”
The high-ranking diplomat confirmed he could feel also certain political will among the participants, and at the same time certain worries about a lack of time.
