LAUSANNE, March 28. /TASS/. A tripartite meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and foreign ministers of France and Germany, Laurent Fabius and Frank-Walter Steinmeier, took place on Saturday in the Swiss city of Lausanne, the venue of a regular round of talks on Iran’s nuclear programme which have been underway since Thursday.
Later on Saturday EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini is expected to attend the talks.
On Sunday Russian and Chinese foreign ministers, Sergey Lavrov and Wang Yi are to arrive in Lausanne.
Earlier Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov, who has been Russia’s representative at the talks, said that P5+1 foreign ministers, comprising five permanent members of the UN Security Council - Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, France and China - alongside Germany, would participate in the Lausanne talks with Iran.
At a meeting in Vienna in November 2014, the P5+1 and Tehran agreed to extend the deadline for an agreement in the talks on Iran’s nuclear program to June 30, 2015.
The agreement stipulated that by the end of March 2015, the sides planned to achieve a principled political decision regarding disputed issues.
Iran says it needs nuclear power to generate electricity, but Western powers led by the United States claim Tehran's eventual aim is to create nuclear weapons.
