LAUSANNE, March 29. /TASS/. US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif started their meeting on Sunday on Iran’s controversial nuclear program.

The meeting is part of a new round of talks that have been going on for several days in Switzerland between Iran and the Group of Six World Powers (Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, France and China as five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) trying to resolve the Iran nuclear issue.

The discussions also involve US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, Chief of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi, as well as Hossein Fereydoun, a brother and adviser of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, US Under-Secretary for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman and Iranian Deputy Foreign Ministers Abbas Araghchi and Majid Takht-Ravanchi.

Nuclear problem

The Iranian delegation expects intensive meetings on Sunday between Iran and the Group of Six on Iran’s nuclear issue.

The foreign ministers of Russia, China and the UK are expected to arrive in Lausanne on Sunday for the nuclear talks.

The US delegation has said Kerry is ready to stay in Lausanne as long as will be necessary.

The foreign ministers from the Group of Six expect to agree a political part of an agreement on settling the Iran nuclear issue.

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.

Negotiations may extend

 Iran and the Group of Six nations are discussing a possibility of extending their ministerial meeting on Iran’s nuclear program until Tuesday, a high-placed Iranian source said on Sunday.

"Yes, such a scenario is quite possible. We’re also discussing it," the source said.
