Swiss VP Calls for World Powers’ Proper Measures in Upcoming Talks with Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- Swiss Vice-President and Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter called on the six world powers to adopt more proper measures for their next round of talks with Iran in Almaty, Kazakhstan, slated for April 5-6 in a bid to achieve an agreement with Tehran.
He made the remarks in a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Europe and America Affairs Ali Asqar Khaji in the Swiss capital Bern on Thursday.
He noted that more proper measures are needed in a bid to achieve results in the upcoming talks in Almaty.
The Swiss foreign minister also expressed the hope that the next round of talks between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) will open up a new chapter in forward-moving measures.
Iran and six world powers last week agreed on further meetings after two days of talks in Kazakhstan, the first since negotiations broke down in June, 2012.
Following the meeting, both the chief negotiators of Iran and the G5+1 described their talks as a “turning point”. While both Iran’s lead negotiator Saeed Jalili and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton – who leads the delegations of the world powers in talks with Iran – said they now have a positive outlook about future talks, Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi told the Austrian TV that a deal is possible now.
Salehi also on Sunday said that Tehran is now waiting to see gradual removal of the western sanctions.
During the talks Iran and the world powers agreed to hold an experts meeting in Istanbul, Turkey, on March 17-18 and then continue their talks at the level of their top negotiators in Almaty, Kazakhstan, on April 5-6.
