    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi will discuss Iran's nuclear program with the International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano on Tuesday in Vienne, a source in Iranian delegation told RIA Novosti.

    Araghchi represented Iranian delegation at the talks with the P5+1 group, comprising the United States, Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom and Germany. They met on Sunday in Geneva to discuss Tehran's nuclear program.

    The head of Iranian delegation said that the negotiations were constructive, but the parties are still far from reaching an agreement.

    Iran's nuclear program has long been a point of concern for the international community. The UN Security Council and a number of countries have imposed several rounds of sanctions on Iran, accusing it of developing nuclear weapons. Tehran has repeatedly rejected those claims, stating that its uranium enrichment program is for peaceful purposes only.

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