No problems between Iran, P5+1 nuclear talks - Atomic Agency chief
Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 20 /Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
There are no major problems between Iran and the 5+1 group, regarding the nuclear talks, and the negotiations continue, head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization Fereydoun Abbasi said, IRNA reported.
Abbasi said that if Iran would have been granted its nuclear rights, the negotiations would lead to some result.
"As the Supreme Leader said, Iran has never left the negotiating table so it would be asked to return there. We are ready to continue the talks with the P5+1 group," Abbasi underscored.
Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia, Sergei Ryabkov said yesterday that that next round of nuclear negotiations between the P5+1 group and Iran can be held in November.
Ryabkov told Interfax that the next meeting will probably be held between High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and Iran's top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili.
As for the place, Ryabkov noted that this will be decided later.
Several days ago Catherine Ashton said she hopes the nuclear talks with Iran would "advance very soon".
"I hope we will be able to make progress very soon," Catherine Ashton, who represents six major powers in their on-and-off talks with Iran, told reporters ahead of the meeting, referring to the resumption of talks.
Iran insists its nuclear work has only peaceful dimensions and has refused in three rounds of talks since April to scale it back unless major economic sanctions are lifted.
But governments in Europe and the United States have refused to do so and, instead, are tightening the financial screws against Tehran as fears grow that the nuclear dispute could envelop the Middle East in a new war.
