“The extension of the talks is being discussed,” Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Friday.
“The negotiations have not ended yet. The delegations will stay in Vienna till July 20. The Russian delegation will be in Vienna until a final agreement is reached,” he said.
“It would be unrealistic to formulate a decision within hours. It is impossible technically. We hope for promoting the talks,” Ryabkov said.
“Considerable progress has been achieved,” he added.
“The place of the talks has not been specified yet. It is still unclear if this round of talks continues or if this is a new round. By July 20 everything should be settled,” Ryabkov said.
“I can’t rule out that the political directors will leave Vienna in the weekend. I have no information,” he said.
Iranian negotiators believe that the P5+1 could not make a choice between “technical talks” and “political gestures”.
Mehr News Agency quote reports that the next round of talks will be held between Iran and the United States.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said the West and the US had different positions on the temporary framework of the talks.
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.
