Sergei Lavrov discussed with John Kerry the situation of the Iranian nuclear program

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 on the Iranian nuclear program, expressing a mutual disposition to reach a compromise within the previously agreed time frame - until November 24, the minister told reporters foreign affairs of the Russian Federation.

Sergei Lavrov said that "the meeting with Secretary of State John Curry lasted an hour and a half. We discussed the situation at the talks on the Iranian nuclear program. At the moment, based on the time factor, this is the top priority issue, given the agreement to try to reach a final compromise before November 24. Our deputies are now working in the region, in Muscat, together with the Iranian representative and are considering specific issues that need to be addressed in order for the final agreement to be finalized. We, including the Americans, have a mutual spirit to do everything to meet this deadline. We will try to find solutions to the remaining two or three questions.

We discussed the situation in the Middle East and North Africa, primarily with an emphasis on the main threat - terrorism in the person of the Islamic State, other groups like Jabhat al-Nusra, and other extremists.

We reaffirmed our position that it is necessary to fight terrorism on a solid basis of international law, that we do not see any legal and even practical reasons for which it would be impossible to cooperate with the Syrian government on this issue. ”

The next round of negotiations between the “six” and Iran will be held on November 11 in the capital of Oman, Muscat. US Secretary of State John Kerry, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Catherine Ashton (who headed European diplomacy before 1 in November) will hold a trilateral meeting on Muscate November on the eve of the talks.
