VIENNA, July 13 (Itar-Tass) - The six international negotiators on Iran’s nuclear program, the P5+1 group of countries, on Sunday agreed a united position at talks with Tehran on its nuclear program, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said in Vienna.
“We discussed all proposals today once again. The main thing is for everyone on the part of the P5+1 who conducts talks to work out a single position and reach out with it to Iran. It happened today,” Steinmeier said.
Iran now has the choice: to meet the international community halfway or remain in isolation, German Foreign Minister said.
“Today, we tried our best to bring to Iran’s representative that now it is time when an agreement could be struck for the decade of talks. Iran has the choice: the path of cooperation with the international community or staying in isolation,” Steinmeier said.
The current round of talks, is the last chance to peacefully resolve the problem around Tehran’s nuclear program, Frank-Walter Steinmeier said.
Iran says it needs nuclear power to generate electricity, but Western powers led by the United States claim Iran’s eventual aim is to create nuclear weapons.
“This would be a considerable breakthrough if it happened like this. Little time remains,” Steinmeier told journalists.
“This would improve our common security, efforts to settle crises in the region and our relations with Iran,” he said.
P5+1 is the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the United States, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and France plus Germany.
