Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has called on the international community to play an active role in the ongoing negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries over Tehran’s nuclear program.
“The international community should not just observe the [nuclear] talks and it is necessary for it to play a role in this regard, so that the negotiations can bear fruit,” Zarif said in a meeting with Indian Foreign Secretary Subrahmanyam Jaishankar in Tehran on Saturday.
The Indian official, for his part, expressed hope that Iran and the P5+1 group could reach an agreement on the text of a final agreement soon, adding that such a deal could contribute to the promotion of Tehran-New Delhi ties.
Negotiators from Iran and the P5+1 – the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany – are holding talks on drafting the text of a possible final deal over Tehran’s nuclear program.
On Friday, a senior member of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team said that Tehran andthe opposite side are resolute to speed up the talks.
