Russian FM: ‘Very Good Chance’ Of Nuclear Deal With Iran


russian-foreign-minister-sergei-lavrovRussian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says that there is a “very good chance” of reaching a deal with Iran over its controversial nuclear program in the next round of talks slated for November 20 in Geneva.

Last weekend’s marathon talks between the P5+1 world powers and Tehran reportedly neared but ended without an agreement, mainly due to French reservations about the terms.

“Our general impression is that there is a very good chance that must not be missed,” Lavrov was quoted by the Russian new agency Interfax as saying.

“Now there are no fundamental disagreements on the issues that need to be resolved in practical terms,” he said, adding that it was imperative that world powers “correctly draw up the agreement we have reached in diplomatic language to make it a truly joint document rather than the one imposed from outside.” Read more at Times of Israel.
