Lausanne hosts another P5+1 meeting without Iran – source
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 31
The P5+1 ministerial talks on Iran resumed in Lausanne after a night of bilateral consultations, a diplomatic source taking part in the negotiations told TASS.
"A new P5+1 ministerial meeting has started," said the source. "Russia is represented by deputy minister Sergey Ryabkov."
The source said that there was no breakthrough achieved, and the issue of lifting the sanctions remains the main unresolved problem.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov returned to Moscow March 30 with the intention to come back to Lausanne March 31 in case of achieving the promotion at the negotiations.
Iran and the P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) are trying to hammer out a comprehensive agreement on the Islamic Republic's nuclear program by July 1.
They have decided to reach a political understanding by the end of March.
