MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. Political directors of the P5+1 (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) and coordinator of contacts Catherine Ashton will meet on Friday without Iran’s participation, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.
The full-format talks will be held in Muscat, Oman, on November 11, he said.
Russia’s delegation will be led by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov. He arrived in Vienna on November 6.
Ryabkov told TASS, “The chance for reaching main decisions at the P5+1-Iran talks is increasing.”
“All signals we heard from Tehran, Washington and the European capitals allow us to assume that the chance for reaching — if not particularly final — main decisions in the coming several days, in any case till November 24, is increasing,” he said.
“We are sure that the political will to reach agreement exists. The point is if there is enough such will to overcome a big position gap, which remained and was evident after the October events in Vienna. Tomorrow’s coordination meeting is mainly designed to solve the problem what should be done to overcome this gap and build the bridge,” Ryabkov said.
In November 2013 Iran and the P5+1 agreed to coordinate a document, which guaranteed the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme in exchange for lifting international sanctions on Iran. Under the schedule, the P5+1 and Iran should complete the work on a comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear problem on November 24.
