LAUSANNE, April 2./TASS/. Talks of the so-called P5+1 - the US, UK, France, China and Russia plus Germany - and Iran "are several inches away from solution," French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said upon arrival in Lausanne for the talks.
"I have arrived as it was planned to take part in phrasing of an agreement," he said.
The top French diplomat said the agreement needs to be "strong and convincing". "It must be an agreement supported by all participants," he added.
Iran and the six negotiators (P5+1) were initially supposed to 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.
