Tehran, YJC. The foreign ministers of Iran and the US Mohammad Javad Zarif and John Kerry, and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton held a third round of talks on Wednesday.

The three sides are seeking ways to meet disagreements over Iran’s nuclear program.

The extent of uranium enrichment, schedule for lifting the anti-Iranian sanctions, and the duration time needed to achieve the comprehensive nuclear agreement are among the issues discussed in the trilateral meeting before tomorrow’s session of the Sextet with Iran.

The remaining points of disagreement between Iran and the Western sides led to lack of success in achieving a comprehensive agreement on July 20, 2014, which led to extending the negotiation period till November 24 by the two sides.

Speaking a day earlier after his working dinner with Ashton, Zarif had said "It is necessary that we negotiated approaches that are determined and at the same time bear some amount of creativity in order to remove disagreements. But such talks are time-consuming and the approaches may need more talks.”

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araqchi had before this 8th round of nuclear talks with the 5+1 Group in Austria told the media that it is possible to further extend the period of negotiations if possibility of reaching the comprehensive agreement will be ruled out in this round.
