LAUSANNE, March 20. /TASS/. The Iranian delegation is leaving talks on Iran’s nuclear program in Switzerland’s Lausanne, negotiations will be resumed on March 25, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Aragchi said on Friday.
"Talks are planned to be resumed on March 25," he said.
It means that the Iranian foreign minister’s meeting with his British, French and German counterparts planned for Saturday will not take place.
US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif have been hplding talks for six days in a row.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov on Friday said the timeframe for lifting Western sanctions imposed on Iran is one of the most difficult issues at talks on Tehran’s nuclear program.
"The problems are almost the same as before although there is some progress here," Ryabkov said. "First, this is the order, the sequence and the extent of lifting the sanctions. Second, these are the restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program during the agreement’s validity period," he said.
"As we understand, these restrictions should not create invincible obstacles in this sphere, but this is a very complex and sensitive issue," the diplomat said.
Most issues - the Arak uranium enrichment facility, the enrichment level, the experimental-design works, the transparency of Iran’s nuclear program and its past military dimension - "are very politicized," he said.
"That’s why the decision on any of these issues is difficult. The sanctions issue the most difficult and also tricky one," he said.
