Iran FM: Vienna talks on right track, good deal possible
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran says that it possible to reach a reasonable agreement for the Islamic Republic and all parties in the P4 + 1 in the ongoing Vienna talks.
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks on the sidelines of the memorial ceremony of the former Iranian envoy to Yemen Hasan Irloo on Tuesday.
"The negotiations are on the right track. The important thing is that we now have a common, unified text that our negotiating team is focused on. The opposing parties also focus on the issues of dispute," he added. "If the other parties continue the negotiations in good faith, it is possible for all parties to reach a good agreement."
Amir-Abdollahian emphasized: "If seriousness and goodwill are seen in the other parties in the future stages of negotiations, reaching an agreement is possible soon and shortly."
He also said: "Iran's negotiating team is heavily involved in talks with the opposing parties in the P4 + 1, and Enrique Mora from the European Union, on behalf of the EU, is actively working to continue its coordinating role in this regard."
Elsewhere in his remarks, Amir-Abdollahian noted the Iranian diplomatic mission in Yemen is now run by chargé d'affaires, adding that the new ambassador will be introduced soon.
Iran believes that in order to preserve the national unity and territorial integrity of Yemen, a government should be formed with the participation of all Yemeni parties, he added.
