LAUSANNE, 19 March. /TASS/. Substantial progress has been reached at talks on Iran’s nuclear program, US Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters on Thursday.
Talks on Iran’s nuclear dossier have continued in Lausanne since March 15. Early on Thursday, John Kerry met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
The director of the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s Political and International Security Department, Hamid Baedinejad, has also noted progress reached at talks, adding, however that no agreement has been reached as of yet on disputable problems. "We will of course extend our meetings into the weekend if necessary, but as far as I know here is no decision on this as of yet," he said.
He said Nowruz (Persian New Year) celebrations on Saturday would not be an obstacle for continuing negotiations. The diplomat could not say whether a next round of negotiations could be expected next week, saying that the end of June and not the end of March was the deadline for reaching an agreement.
