The group comprising fiver permanent member-states of the UN Security Council and Germany conducted talks with Iran on its nuclear program. Their successful completion is viewed broadly as one of the biggest recent achievements of international diplomacy.
The meeting will take place on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit underway in Washington. The initiative to convene it came from Obama.
Respective country leaders are leading the US, French, British, and Chinese delegations at to the summit. The German delegation is led by the Defence Minister.
