|No real differences in nuclear talks between P5+1 and Iran: Lavrov||
TEHRAN – The Russian foreign minister has revealed that there are no real differences on practical issues between the six-party negotiators and Iran.
What is needed now is to set down our understanding in a document, Sergey Lavrov told the Russian TVC channel, according to RT.
“The negotiations with the Foreign Minister of Iran (Mohammad Javad Zarif) have confirmed that for the first time in many years the sextet of negotiators and Tehran are ready to truly seek common grounds instead of presenting mostly uncorrelated positions,” said the Russian FM in an interview to Postscriptum program.
“Such areas of common interests have been defined and there remain no principle differences in solving practical questions,” Lavrov said. “What we’re talking about now is a correct diplomatic recording of the reached understanding so that it becomes a truly joint document, not imposed on anyone from outside.”
There is a chance to settle the Iranian nuclear problem because P5+1 (The five members of the Security Council plus Germany) is determined to find a solution with the new leadership of the Iranian Islamic Republic, Lavrov said.
“The Iranians say they need one year to clear the table of all the questions troubling the IAEA and thereby eliminate the reasons that caused the international sanctions,” Lavrov told the TVC channel.
He also said that he had discussed the Iranian nuclear program issue with the European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
