Lavrov: Parties to Iran nuclear talks agree on every keynote issue

Iran and the P5+1 group have agreed on every keynote issue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

Iran and the P5+1 group have agreed on every keynote issue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

He said the agreements would be publicized within hours or during the day. "Experts will be working out details till the end of June. As you know, the devil is in the detail but the goal is quite feasible," the minister said in a program aired by the Rossiya 24 channel.

Lavrov said he was rather sure that the ministers had agreed on all essential aspects of the final deal and their agreements would be put on paper within hours, probably, on Wednesday, April 1.

"The entire concept of this activity relies on the opinion Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed several years ago when he called for resolving the Iran nuclear problem on the basis of the vested right of Iran to a peaceful nuclear program, including uranium enrichment, the program's control by the IAEA, and the lift of all sanctions imposed on Iran," Lavrov underlined.

He also said that the draft agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group included broader propositions on the lift of the sanctions.

"The agreement envisages a comprehensive settlement method, including verification of the exclusively peaceful nature of the nuclear program by the IAEA and detailed proposals on the lift of the sanctions," he said.

EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif will present details of the agreements, Lavrov noted.

A source in the Iranian delegation told reporters earlier that the ministerial negotiations between the P5+1 group and Iran had been suspended until Wednesday morning.
