Regular round of talks between Iran, P5+1 to start in November
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct.28
A regular round of talks between Iran and the P5+1 (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) at the level of political directors will start in Vienna on November 18, a source close to the negotiations told TASS news agency on Oct.28.
"Last week the experts-level consultations were held well.The results were achieved in all directions," the source said.
"The outcome of the talks depends on the parties' political will and on who will make the first step," the source added.
Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) held their latest round of talks in Vienna in mid-October to work out a final agreement aimed at ending the long-standing dispute over Tehran's nuclear program.
Last November, the two sides clinched an interim nuclear accord, which took effect on Jan. 20 and expired six months later.
However, the parties agreed to extend their talks until Nov. 24 as they remained divided on a number of key issues.
