Araqchi, Takht-e Ravanchi leave Tehran for Geneva

Politics - nian deputy foreign ministers Seyyed Abbas Araqchi and Majid Takht-e Ravanchi left Tehran earlier on Friday morning to join the Iranian nuclear negotiation team that is engaged in talks with the US team.

The Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif and his US counterpart John Kerry, too, will on Saturday, May 30, join their deputies and assistants in Geneva and that would mark the peak of this relatively final phase of the sensitive negotiations that can lead to one of the most fateful agreements of the 21st century, and maybe even beyond.

Kerry and Zarif will in their Saturday meeting check the final details needed for drafting the final comprehensive agreement and the roadmap for the Iran-western powers' future commitments in its aftermath.

The US Energy Department has announced that Secretary of Energy Dr. Ernest J. Moniz, too, will be present in this round of Geneva nuclear negotiations.

That is while the Iranian technicians and legal experts and their 5+1 Group counterparts have been pursing their work on details of the upcoming deal in Vienna during the past couple of days.

It had earlier been announced that this 5th round of Vienna talks aimed at drafting the final text of the comprehensive nuclear agreement will conclude activities on Friday, May 29, but it is thus made clear that accomplishing the job will take at least till early days of the next week in Geneva.

All four previous rounds of the nuclear negotiations aimed at drafting the final text were held by Iranian deputy foreign ministers and their 5+1 Group counterparts, three in Vienna and one in New York.
