    Source in the Iranian delegation confirmed that next meeting of the P5+1 group and Iran on Tehran's nuclear program could be held on March 2.

    GENEVA, February 23 (Sputnik) The next meeting of the P5+1 group and Iran on Tehran's nuclear program could be held on March 2, a source in the Iranian delegation confirmed to Sputnik Monday.

    "It is discussed," the source said adding that the details are yet to be confirmed.

    Delegations from Iran and the P5+1, comprising the United States, Russia, China, France and Germany, are currently in Geneva to take part in the latest round of negotiations on Iran's nuclear program.

    The Iranian delegation considered last night's talks to be fruitful, yet told Sputnik it was too early to claim any progress.

    The UN Security Council and individual countries have adopted a number of tough sanctions against Iran, accusing it of developing nuclear weapons. Tehran has rejected the claims, stating that its uranium enrichment program has only civilian implications.

    Iran and the P5+1 group have held several rounds of talks on Tehran's nuclear program in recent years with limited results. A long-term agreement has to be reached by July 2015.
