The fifth round of nuclear talks between P5+1 and the Iranian regime came to an end.
Michael Mann, spokesman of EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, issued a statement saying the two parties have started lettering the final agreement text.
Senior P5+1 diplomats will be meeting on June 26th in Brussels to discuss the next round of negotiations in Vienna that will begin on July 2nd, Mann added.
Citing diplomats informed of the talks AP reported some of the disputes have decreased but they have made little progress on the main subject because Iran continues to resist on the harsh limitations to be imposed on its uranium enrichment program.
The Revolutionary Guards’ Fars news agency wired a report saying many differences in the negotiators’ positions have led to doubts on reaching an agreement before the July 20th deadline. The 6-month negotiations period can be extended but since this extension can complicate the situation, all parties are trying to reach an agreement in this first 6-month period.
