LAUSANNE, April 1. /TASS/. Iran has taken a pause in talks with the six international negotiators on its nuclear program in Lausanne, Switzerland, a European diplomatic source told TASS Wednesday.
"We have to state that the document will hardly be agreed today," the source said.
The diplomat did not rule out that talks will last at least one more day.
The participants of the talks were trying to agree a political statement on the frameworks of the future comprehensive agreement for over nine hours.
Initially it was planned that Iran and the six negotiators (P5+1) may reach an understanding on the political part of the deal by the end of March, but overnight to April 1, they only made a statement that the key aspects of the deal have been agreed at the ministerial level. The sides plan to agree the final document by June 31.
At a meeting in Vienna in November 2014, the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council — the United States, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and France — plus Germany) and Tehran agreed to extend the deadline for a deal 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.
