VIENNA (Reuters) – Six world powers and Iran made a “good start” in talks in Vienna towards reaching a final settlement in the decade-old dispute on Tehran’s nuclear programme, but acknowledged their plan to get a deal in the coming months was very ambitious.
By late July, western governments hope to hammer out an accord that would lay to rest their suspicions that Iran is seeking the capability to make a nuclear bomb, an aim it denies, while Tehran wants a lifting of economic sanctions.
Senior US administration official asked re: firms eyeing #Iran: “We want companies to be mindful & thoughtful about what they’re doing.”
Senior US administration official says US would like to see #Iran sanctions lifted, but that can only happen after final atom deal agreed
VIENNA (Reuters) – Iran and six world powers have agreed on an agenda for negotiations over Tehran’s nuclear program and will meet again in the second half of March in Vienna, a senior Iranian official said after two days of talks in the Austrian capital.
Although modest in scope, the agreement on an agenda indicates an early step forward in the elusive search for a settlement of the decade-old dispute.
