Iran and the six powerful countries set for talks on Tuesday to meet a requirement they had decided earlier to reach a political understanding on Iran’s nuclear program by the end of March.
The talks are held in Lausanne, Switzerland and foreign ministers of the 7 countries are engaged in intense negotiations.
Speaking on the sidelines of the talks, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi stated that good signs are emerging, boosting hope that the desired outcome will be gained.
The six major powers are attempting to limit Iran’s nuclear activities beyond the requirements of the Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Tehran, in return, demands the removal of all international sanctions on its economy.
Meanwhile, Director of the Office of Disarmament Affairs and Director of Political and International Affairs of the Iranian Foreign Ministry and member of the Iranian nuclear negotiation team Hamid Baidinejad said that the negotiating parties all share the idea that an approach has to be reached before the March 31 deadline.
