Tehran, Iran, June 14
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
Deputy foreign ministers as well as nuclear and legal experts from Iran and the group P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany) started their fifth day of talks in Vienna on Iran's nuclear program.
Iranian deputy foreign ministers Abbas Araqchi and Majid Takhtravanchi set for talks with EU deputy chief of foreign policy Helga Schmid at 9:30 local time, IRNA news agency reported June 14.
Half an hour before that, Iran's Hamid Baidinejad and EU's Stephen Clement headed expert delegations in a separate session.
Iran and the six powers are trying to hammer out a nuclear deal by June 30.
The Vienna talks were to wrap up in three days, that is, June 12, but they have been extended.
On June 12 a plenary was held with deputy foreign ministers to assess the progress of the talks. There, the sides called for more effort to hasten the talks.
Iran has said although it cannot go on with talks forever and seeks a nuclear deal, it will not limit itself to a deadline at the cost of losing what it calls a good deal.
