Iran and P5+1 accelerate talks

(VOVworld) – The P5+1 group and Iran resumed nuclear talks in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Sunday in a hope to clinch a framework agreement on Iran’s nuclear program as the March 31st deadline approaches. US Secretary of State John Kerry said it was unclear whether or not an outline of the deal will be reached before March 31 but they have made some progress. There are still some important gaps, Kerry added, noting that the ultimate goal of their talks is not just a framework agreement but a comprehensive nuclear deal.

The P5+1 group and Iran will discussa bill to ease sanctions against Tehran once the deal is adopted. The US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the UN Security Council will hold an endorsement vote if the UN is able to reach a joint comprehensive Plan of Action between the P5+1 and Iran.

Since December, 2006, the US and EU have imposed a number of sanctions against Iran’s financial services and energy sector. The removal of those sanctions is key to future talks between Iran and the P5+1.
