BEIJING, November 8. /TASS/. Russia and the U.S. hope an agreement on the Iranian nuclear programme will be reached before November 24, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters on Saturday after a meeting with the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
“We have discussed first of all the situation at the negotiations on the Iranian nuclear programme. As for the timing aspect, this is a most priority issue now, since there are intentions to try reaching a final compromise before November 24,” the foreign minister said.
He said representatives of the U.S. and Russia “have been working in Muscat jointly with Iranian representatives.”
“They have been dealing with outstanding issues to reach a final agreement,” Lavrov said.
“We share the view, including with the Americans, to undertake everything to fit the time. We shall try to settle outstanding two-three issues,” the Russian foreign minister said.
