VIENNA, November 20. /TASS/. It would be extremely hard to achieve an agreement between Iran and the six international negotiators (P5+1) on Tehran’s nuclear program without a new political impetus, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Thursday.
“There is no certainty that if everyone sticks to what has been implemented until now, this puzzle will be pieced together,” Ryabkov told journalists.
“Without a new impetus, it would be extremely hard to achieve a result,” he said.
However, none of participants in talks between Iran and a group of six nations have mentioned the need to prolong the negotiations so far, Ryabkov told journalists. “No one is talking about the prolongation. Simply no one,” Ryabkov said.
It will be difficult to agree at the P5+1-Iran talks, but the chance cannot be missed, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister said.
According to Ryabkov, the talks are held “in an exclusively tense atmosphere.”
“Time is slipping away,” Ryabkov said.
Commenting on the problem of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s arrival in Vienna, Ryabkov said that it had not been solved yet.
“The problem of who will represent Russia on the completing stage (of the talks) has not been solved,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister said.
