Moscow, Beijing closely working to resolve Iran nuclear issue
Moscow, July 9, IRNA â€“ Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and chief nuclear negotiator Sergei Ryabkov said on Thursday that Moscow and Beijing have close cooperation to resolve disputes over Iran’s peaceful nuclear program.
According to Rossiya Segodnya news agency, he made the comments in a press conference in the city of Ufa, capital of Bashkortostan Republic of Russia.
Iran’s nuclear issue is among the items which Russia and China as two partners at the summit meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and BRICS are determined to resolve, the Russian official said.
The unresolved issues are economic sanctions and setting the exact date for a comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, the Russian official said.
Other issues such as alleged military aspects of Iran’s nuclear program are under negotiations and talks on it still continues, he added.
Prediction on final outcome of the nuclear talks is very difficult, Ryabkov said.
He had already told reporters that all issues might be resolved by Wednesday afternoon and grounds for signing the final deal might be created.
The two sides have paved 95 percent of the path and there are only some steps which should be taken, he said.
