ILNA: Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif leaved Tehran for Vienna early Tuesday morning.
Zarif is scheduled to meet with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton Tuesday evening ahead of the trilateral talks with Ashton and US Secretary of State John Kerry over Iran’s nuclear program to be held on Wednesday.
Zarif, Ashton and Kerry will discuss the progress of the ongoing nuclear negotiations between Tehran and the G۵ + ۱ group of the world powers.
The negotiations may extend till Thursday.
Tehran and the G۵ + ۱ – Russia, China, France, Britain, the US and Germany – wrapped up their latest round of nuclear discussions in New York late September.
Iran and its negotiating partners are currently working to reach a final agreement aimed at ending the longstanding dispute over Tehran’s civilian nuclear activities as the November ۲۴ deadline approaches.
Last November, the two sides clinched an interim nuclear accord, which took effect on January ۲۰ and expired six months later. However, they agreed to extend their talks until November ۲۴, as they remained split on a number of key issues.
