UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has expressed hope that the next round of talks between Tehran and the P5+1 in Moscow will yield “reciprocal” results toward the resolution of Iran's nuclear energy issue.
The secretary general hopes that the next round of talks between the P5+1 and Iran, scheduled to take place in Moscow, Russia, on June 18-19, results in “concrete and reciprocal steps towards a comprehensive negotiated solution” to Iran's nuclear energy program, Ban’s spokesman Martin Nesirky told a press briefing on Thursday.
Iran and the P5+1 -Britain, China, France, Russia, and the United States plus Germany- wrapped up their last meeting in Baghdad on May 24 after two days of negotiations.
The Iranian negotiating delegation was headed by Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili and the delegations of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany were headed by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
Both sides agreed to hold another round of talks in Moscow on June 18-19.
