The next round nuclear talks between Iran and the six major powers (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) will start on June 16 and Zarif as Iran’s chief negotiator will attend the conference.
Zarif said that in the non-aligned conference in Algiers he told Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Abdulaziz bin Abdullah that the time for the Vienna talks had been set before and it was not possible to change it.
