Baku, Azerbaijan, March 29
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Iranian and Chinese diplomats held a one-hour meeting on the Islamic Republic's nuclear program in the Swiss city of Lausanne.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi discussed ways to approach a political understanding to the case, Fars news agency reported March 29.
The Chinese foreign minister then talked to US Secretary of State John Kerry as they walked around the campus where the negotiations are held.
Catherine Ray, Spokesperson for EU Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the same day wrote on Twitter that High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and US Secretary of State John Kerry ended a four-sided meeting on the issue.
Iran and the group 5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) are in intense talks on Tehran's nuclear program.
While the six powers seek to limit Iran's nuclear activities, Tehran demands for the removal of all international sanctions before a deal is struck.
