The P5+1 meeting on Iran at political directors level will be held on Thursday, October 16, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Tuesday, calling it a step towards reaching a comprehensive agreement on Tehran’s nuclear programme. He will leave for Vienna on Wednesday, October 15, to prepare the meeting.
“Now the most important for us is that the time is not being lost,” he said.
“The agenda for Thursday is very intense. It will include the P5+1 coordination meeting, maybe not once, due to the contacts that Americans and the EU are holding today and tomorrow. We may meet more than one time,” Ryabkov said.
“This demonstrates political will to work for the result. There is a chance that till November 24 we’ll be able to meet the deadline and work out an agreement. Probably, we’ll succeed in realizing this chance,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister said.
