A detailed document on the Iranian nuclear program will be presented by experts by June 30, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
The minister said the agreements on the Iranian nuclear program achieved yesterday still remain to be translated into the language of practical actions.
"Experts are working on it. They will present a very detailed document, which outlines what Iran is doing and precisely how the sanctions will be lifted, by June 30, 2014," he told reporters in Bishkek.
"I am confident that the deputy foreign ministers and the ministers of the Sextet countries and Iran will be able to meet on this section of the work and supervise this work so it is completed," he said.
"The chances of that are very good," Lavrov said.
The P5+1 (the UN Security Council's five permanent members plus Germany) and Iran were able to secure a mutual understanding on key parameters for Tehran's future peaceful nuclear program at talks in Lausanne, Switzerland.
"Tentative mutual understanding was secured concerning key parameters for all elements of Iran's future peaceful nuclear activity, measures for its verification and control by the international organization in charge of these issues - IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency), restrictions to be imposed on Iran's nuclear activity, as well as the procedure, sequence and extent of sanctions relief for Iran both by the UN Security Council and the U.S. and the European Union, which imposed unilateral sanctions [on Iran]," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday evening.
This political agreement incorporates the principle formulated by Russian President Vladimir Putin: "recognition of Iran's unconditional right to pursue a peaceful nuclear program, including uranium enrichment activity, international control over this program and the lifting of all sanctions facing Iran," the ministry said.
"All subsequent steps as part of a final agreement will be taken by the parties based on the phased and mutual principle, as previously proposed by the Russian side," it said.
