VIENNA, February 24. /TASS/. Washington and Tehran have reached certain progress at the talks on the controversial Iranian nuclear program in Geneva and the American side held a constructive stance, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi told journalists on Tuesday.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said on Tuesday after talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Yukiya Amano that Iran and the IAEA have agreed to accelerate the work aimed at settling disputable issues of the Iranian nuclear program.
According to him, the consultations were "constructive and useful." He declined to specify, however, if the work on the two outstanding issues of nuclear research verification has been completed and if the sides have agreed on a new package of measures.
"We have reached some progress but there is a lot to do ahead of us as some disagreements remain," Araghchi said. "In some spheres we managed to advance further but in other spheres disagreements remain."
According to him, both sides discussed all complicated issues, "including sanctions, which are still the key issue for Iran."
After failing to reach an agreement by November 24, 2014, Iran and the six world powers (Russia, China, the UK, the US, France plus Germany) decided to extend their discussions for seven more months.
Western nations suspect Iran of using its nuclear research for developing atomic weapons while Iran insists its nuclear program is intended for peaceful purposes only.
