    Tuesday marks the last day of talks between P5+1 and Iran on Tehran's nuclear program in Lausanne, Switzerland, as well as the deadline for the sides to work out a framework for the agreement.

    LAUSANNE (Sputnik) – The foreign ministers of P5+1 group are continuing negotiations with representatives of Iran, with a Tuesday, March 31 deadline for a framework for the agreement on Tehran's nuclear program, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

    The top diplomats of Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China and Germany are currently holding a plenary session in Lausanne's Beau Rivage hotel, chaired by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini.

    All sides previously stated that they seek a "good deal," yet differences remain.

    Tuesday marks the last day of talks between P5+1 and Iran on Tehran's nuclear program in Lausanne, Switzerland, as well as the deadline for the sides to work out a framework for the agreement.

    The P5+1 group of international mediators, comprising Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, the United States and Germany, are attempting to convince Iran to halt its uranium enrichment program for more than ten years and decrease the number of centrifuges.

    Initially, Tehran insisted on having at least 10,000 centrifuges, but in February agreed to consider a US proposal of cutting the number to 6,500.

    Iran and the P5+1 group have held several rounds of talks on Tehran's nuclear program since November 2013 with limited results. The negotiators are now working towards the July 1 deadline to forge a final agreement.
