PARIS (Sputnik) — Reaching an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program is essential not only for security in the Middle East, but also for security worldwide, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Saturday.
Only the agreement that does not allow creating nuclear weaponry under the framework of Iranian nuclear program will be acceptable, the EU foreign policy chief stressed.
Mogherini pledged to exert her best efforts to facilitate the process of negotiations.
The deadline for reaching the agreement was set for July, 2015.
On March 5, Iran and P5+1 had their most recent talks in the Swiss resort of Montreux. According to the EU External Action Service, the Montreux negotiations resulted in “some progress.”
On Saturday, several members of P5+1 group – US Secretary of State John Kerry, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, German Foreign Minister Frank Walter Steinmeier and British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond — met with Mogherini in Paris to discuss a number of pending issues including the state of negotiations on Iranian nuclear program agreement.
