MOSCOW, July 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s delegation will do its best to work out mutually acceptable decisions at the talks between Iran and the P5+1 (five members of the UN Security Council and Germany) by July 20, the Russian Foreign Ministry says.

The regular round of talks on Iran’s nuclear program started in Vienna on Friday. The talks are being held under the auspices of EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.

Head of the Russian delegation, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has had several bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the talks, including with Wang Qun, director of the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s Department of Arms Control and the Iranian foreign minister.

Ryabkov also met with Ashton, Iranian deputies foreign ministers, Abbas Araghchi and Majid Takhte-Ravanchi, US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman.

Earlier, Ryabkov said the P5+1 coordinated the positions before the final round of talks.

“The Brussels meeting (of June 26) was aimed at forming the position for the next round. We realise the existing problems and the possibilities for compromises,” he said.

The P5+1 is a group of countries which in 2006 joined the diplomatic efforts with Iran in regard to its nuclear program. The term refers to the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, namely the United States, Russia, China, United Kingdom, France, and Germany.
