LAUSANNE, March 29. /TASS/. The Iran-P5+1 group (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany) talks on Iran’s nuclear programme are nearing the moment of truth, with the sides beginning to discuss the wording of possible agreements, a top-ranking source taking part in the talks said on Sunday.
"I wouldn’t be wrong to say that the moment of truth is nearing. The sides have begun to discuss the wording of possible agreements. But it will be possible to speak about positive results only after ministerial talks are over," the source said.
Foreign ministers of Iran and the P5+1 group are expected to have a plenary meeting later on Sunday. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is on his way to Switzerland. British Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Phillip Hammond is expected to arrive soon. Other ministers are in Lausanne already.
Teheran and the P5+1 group of international mediators understand that they have arrived at the crucial moment of talks on Iran’s nuclear dossier, an Iranian diplomatic source taking part in the talks told TASS on Sunday.
"Obviously, all participants in the talks are worried over the developments in the Middle East," he said. "There is feeling that the parties to the negotiating process realize the necessity of solving our (Iranian) issue.".
