Iran and major powers are set to hold multilateral and bilateral nuclear talks in the coming days in Vienna
Iran and major powers are set to hold multilateral and bilateral nuclear talks in the coming days in Vienna, Iran's foreign ministry said on Wednesday.
"I think that we will have bilateral and multilateral talks before the end of the next week in Vienna," ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said when asked when Iran and its negotiating partners would next meet. She was speaking at a news conference carried live on state television.
However, Iran's President Hasan Rouhani said Tehran and world powers agree on the principles of a final deal on the Iranian nuclear program but that differences remain on the "details" that still need to be negotiated. He says that Iran and the six-nation group — the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany — have come a long way in sorting out major issues but that they still differ over issues such as "quantity."
Rouhani spoke with lawmakers on Tuesday night, according to the Iranian state television.
The two sides face a November 24 deadline to reach a comprehensive deal.
