TEHRAN, December 3. /TASS/. The exact date and venue for a new round of the negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program between the international group of six mediators (five permanent UN Security Council and Germany) and Tehran are so far undetermined, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham told a news conference in Tehran on Wednesday.
“The time and venue of the future negotiations between Iran and the Sextet have not been determined yet,” he said.
In late November, representatives of Iran and the Sextet held intensive negotiations in Vienna during seven days aiming to reach a comprehensive deal on the Iranian nuclear program. However, the parties failed to agree by the previously set deadline — November 24. They also failed to work out the framework political document, determining only the conditions and timeframe of the negotiating process extension.
It was agreed that within the next four months, the negotiators would focus on reaching a political or general agreement and then would proceed to the agreement details linked with technical and legal issues. A seven-month period was allotted for the new round of the talks. Western diplomats suggested that the meetings may be held in Vienna or Oman.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said the negotiations with the six world powers were transparent and specific. Also, she dismissed the reports suggesting that the sides allegedly reached a certain compromise. The sides have considerably brought together their positions in the negotiations, she said, adding that some differences still remained.
