The ongoing negotiations between Iran and six major world powers over Tehran’s controversial nuclear program have a high chance of producing a deal, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said. But the parties must not try to up the ante.
Lavrov interrupted his participation in the talks in in Switzerland’s Lausanne on Monday for a meeting with a delegation from Vanuatu, a small Pacific nation recently devastated by a cyclone.
Later on Tuesday he is to return to the negotiations, which are in a make-or-break last day phase.
The chances of a breakthrough in the talks are high, but success is not guaranteed, Lavrov stressed during a joint media conference with his Vanuatu counterpart Sato Kilman.
