GENEVA, January 18. /TASS/. The work on text of an agreement between Iran and the Sextet (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) is moving slowly, the round in Geneva is not likely to offer a breakthrough, a source in a Western delegation told TASS on Sunday.
“We continue the work on presenting approaches to be used as a base for the further agreement,” the source said. “But the process is rather sluggish. We do not expect any major breakthrough today.”
The source explained the extending issues required time and accord. “The political directors continue the dialogue,” the source said. “Here, we also have to mind the general situation in the Middle East.”
Political directors of Iran and the Sextet have on Sunday a full-format negotiation round in Geneva. It will be over late in the afternoon. Russia is represented by its Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.
