On the margins of the APEC summit in Beijing, a meeting between Sergey Lavrov and John Kerry

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry, during a bilateral meeting "on the sidelines" of the APEC summit in Beijing, discussed the situation regarding the Iranian nuclear program, expressing "mutual disposition" to reach a compromise within the previously agreed time frame - by November 24 , the Russian Foreign Minister told reporters.

The "six" of international mediators (USA, Great Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China) and Iran are negotiating to develop a system of guarantees of an exclusively peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear program in exchange for a complete gradual lifting of international sanctions against the country. At the same time, such an agreement by mutual agreement of the parties should be worked out before November 24, "he said.

Lavrov noted that during the meeting, the parties "discussed, first of all, the situation in the talks on the Iranian nuclear program," because, according to him, "this is now purely a time factor of the highest priority, given the agreement to try to reach a final compromise by November 24 ". "Our deputies are now working in the region, in Muscat, together with the Iranian representative, and are considering specific issues that still need to be resolved so that the final agreement is formalized," the minister said.

"We have a mutual disposition, including with the Americans, to do everything possible to meet these deadlines. We will try to find solutions to the remaining two or three issues," Lavrov added.
