The technical aspects of a possible nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers are nearly complete, the head of the Tehran’s nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi said on Sunday.
“Technical discussions are almost over and the text regarding the technical issues with their annexes is almost finished,” he was quoted as saying by Iran’s students news agency ISNA.
Diplomats close to the nuclear negotiations in the Austrian capital say that the most difficult remaining issues in the talks are political, not technical.
In the meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is set to join Iran nuclear talks in Vienna later Sunday, Russian news agencies reported, citing a ministry source.
“Today, Minister Lavrov plans to take part in talks on the Iran nuclear programme in Vienna,” the source was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti state news agency.
