    The next round of talks on Iran's nuclear program between representatives from Tehran and the P5+1 group may take place next week, according to Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi.

    GENEVA (Sputnik) — The next talks on Iran's nuclear program between representatives from Tehran and the P5+1 group may take place next week, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi told RIA Novosti Monday.

    "Tonight, all delegations will leave Geneva, including [US Secretary of State John] Kerry and [Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad] Zarif. The next round may take place next week, we are working on it," Araghchi said.

    The minister added that bilateral meetings on various levels are currently being held, including between the Russian and the Iranian delegations.

    The P5+1 group includes the permanent members of the UN Security Council – Russia, the United States, Britain, France, China – plus Germany.

    The group is negotiating with Iran to reach a comprehensive agreement on Tehran's nuclear program, which has long been a point of concern for the international community.

    After repeated delays, the group is now set to sign an agreement with Iran, guaranteeing the peaceful nature of its nuclear program, by July 2015.
