Progress visible on many aspects of Iran nuclear problem

Progress has been made on a lot of aspects following another round of negotiations on the Iran nuclear problem except for the lifting of sanctions from Tehran, says Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.

"Virtually no [progress has been made regarding the lifting of sanctions from Iran] compared to New York [a meeting between experts] last week. But more progress was made there [on sanctions], and its degree has been impressive for the first time over a long period. But there was no progress on other issues. And now it's vice versa - we have more progress on other issues," Ryabkov told Interfax in summing up outcomes of his participation in a meeting of P5+1 and Iranian political directors in Vienna.

At the same time, "there are no reasons to say that we have a deadlock or a stall somewhere" Ryabkov said.
