UN chief aims for productive talks over Iran's nuclear program

Ban Ki-moon has called on the participants of the current talks in Vienna over resolution of Iran's nuclear problem to show flexibility and resolve in order to reach final agreements.

The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has called on the participants of the current talks in Vienna over resolution of Iran's nuclear problem to show flexibility and resolve in order to reach final agreements.

"On the occasion of the resumption of talks between the P5+1 and the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Secretary-General calls on all participants to demonstrate the necessary flexibility, wisdom and determination to bring the negotiations to a successful conclusion that meets the concerns and interests of all sides," according to a statement by the spokesperson for the UN Secretary General, issued in New York on Thursday.

"The Secretary-General hopes that reaching a mutually-acceptable and comprehensive agreement will restore confidence in the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear programme," the spokesperson said.

"He is convinced that such an accord can contribute to the strengthening of regional and international peace and security at a time when global cooperation is needed perhaps more than ever," he said.

On November 18 the six international negotiators (the five Permanent Members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) and Iran began the tenth, and possibly final, round of talks in Vienna with the aim to reach a comprehensive agreement that would guarantee an absolutely peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program, and to lift all sanctions imposed on Tehran.

Work on this document is due to be completed by November 24.
