Iran, P5+1 meet for First Full Session

Iran Interested To Go Ahead With Nuclear Talks With P5+1
  • Foreign Ministers from major powers raced against the clock on Monday on the eve of a deadline to nail down the final pieces of a framework deal they hope will put any Iranian nuclear bomb out of reach.
  • They want Iran to scale back its nuclear program to give the world ample notice of any dash to make the bomb and end a crisis that has threatened to escalate dangerously for 12 years.
  • The diplomatically isolated Islamic republic denies wanting nuclear weapons and is calling for the lifting of sanctions that have strangled its lifeblood oil exports and its access to the global financial system.
  • the talks remained blocked on three major issues — the length of the accord; the lifting of U.N. sanctions; and a mechanism to ensure both sides stick to the deal.
