VIENNA, July 10. /TASS/. Progress in Iran nuclear talks is "painfully slow," UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond told journalists on Friday.
Several issues still need to be agreed, Hammond added. Iran and P5+1 group of international mediators will hold another ministerial meeting on Saturday, UK foreign secretary said.
Answering a question on whether the final deal will be reached in Vienna in the next few days, Hammond said it is possible.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said earlier he hopes that talks between Iran and P5+1 group on Tehran’s nuclear program will end by Monday. However, he noted that the delegations of Iran and P5+1 group will most likely have to spend the whole weekend in Vienna. "We try to move forward and make progress," Zarif said.
The final round of talks between Iran and the six powers (US, UK, Russia, China, France and Germany) on Teheran’s nuclear program is currently underway in Vienna. A final comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear dossier was originally expected to be elaborated by June 30 but the negotiating process has been extended until July 7.
On Tuesday, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the deadline has been extended once again as the sides need several more days to reach the final comprehensive agreement.
