Iranian and Russian FMs discuss nuclear program
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 2
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif discussed the course of negotiations on Tehran's nuclear program and bilateral cooperation, the Russian foreign ministry said, RIA Novosti reported March 2.
The sides held talks in Geneva on the sidelines of the 28th session of the UN Council on Human Rights.
"The sides discussed the prospects of negotiations on Iran's nuclear program, as well as some aspects of the international agenda and bilateral cooperation," the Russian foreign ministry said.
"Six" international mediators [Russia, the US, China, Great Britain, France, Germany] and Iran continue diplomatic efforts towards a comprehensive agreement on Iran's nuclear program.
"Six" international mediators and Iran agreed to prepare an agreement in Geneva in November 2013. It guarantees the exclusively peaceful nature of Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for full lifting of sanctions. A year later, such agreement was not worked out. There is only an "interim plan of actions". The sides extended the negotiations until the end of June 2015.
