Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 19
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif who leads Iran's nuclear delegation, has left Tehran for the Swiss city of Geneva to take part in negotiations with P5+1 over the country's nuclear program, ISNA news agency reported on Nov. 19.
The last round of nuclear talks between Iran and the five United Nations members with veto powers plus Germany, known as P5+1, ended on November 10 without any result.
The next round of talks are scheduled to be held in Geneva on November 20 and 21.
According to the report, Zarif will visit Italy to meet with Italian officials on his way to Geneva.
The U.S. and its Western allies suspect Iran of developing a nuclear weapon - something that Iran denies. The Islamic Republic has stated that it does not seek to develop nuclear weapons, using nuclear energy for medical research instead.
