LAUSANNE (Sputnik) — International mediators are expecting Tehran to make new proposals later on Wednesday to advance the current talks on Iran's controversial nuclear program, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said.
“Foreign ministers will meet between 8 and 9 pm [around 19:00-20:00 GMT] Wednesday,” Steinmeier told German journalists, adding that some new proposals could be discussed.
The current round of negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 group, comprising Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, China, France and Germany, follows numerous previous meetings aimed at reaching a deal on Tehran's nuclear activities.
"The minister is planning to stay until April 2," the source said.
The Islamic Republic has long been accused of attempting to create nuclear weapons under the guise of a civilian nuclear program, claims it has repeatedly rejected.
The deadline to reach a comprehensive agreement which would guarantee the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program has been repeatedly postponed and is currently set for July 2015.
