VIENNA, April 22. /TASS/. Iran and the six international negotiators have coordinated provisions of the final document on Tehran's nuclear program, a Western diplomatic source taking part in negotiations told TASS.

The source also said a regular round of talks between Iran and the six international negotiators on Iran’s nuclear program (P5+1) may be held already next week in New York.

"Experts are highly likely to meet next week in the United States to continue work on the text of a comprehensive agreement," the source said. "Political directors may join them."

He said the issue will be specified in Vienna within the next few days.

A negotiating round on Iran's nuclear program at the level of experts kicked off in the Austrian capital Wednesday; the political directors of Iran and the six international negotiators plan to join the meeting Friday.

Prospective deal in Iran nuclear talks

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.

At a meeting in Vienna in November 2014, the P5+1 and Tehran agreed to extend the deadline for a deal in the talks on Iran’s nuclear program to June 30, 2015.

The P5+1 is the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the United States, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and France - plus Germany.

The latest round of talks between Iran and the P5+1 in Lausanne ended April 2, 2015 with the conclusion of a joint comprehensive action plan on the Iranian nuclear program, to be adopted by the end of June.

As the plan is being implemented, all political and economic sanctions are to be lifted from Tehran. Meanwhile, on April 9, 2015 media quoted Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as saying that if sanctions are not lifted first, Iran will not sign the nuclear deal with the six international negotiators.
