MOSCOW, November 21. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday discussed by phone prospects of reaching a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear program and noted the necessity to seek political and diplomatic ways out of the crisis in Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“The foreign policy chiefs discussed prospects of achieving a comprehensive agreement with Iran,” the ministry said.
“It was stressed that it is necessary to make additional efforts to reach specific agreements within the terms that were agreed earlier,” the statement said.
“The sides did not rule out the possibility to hold in the next few days a ministerial meeting of Iranian nuclear program talks’ participants if there is a prospect of progress in that sphere,” the ministry said.
Iran says it needs nuclear power to generate electricity, but Western powers led by the United States claim Iran’s eventual aim is to create nuclear weapons.
