Austria: EU's Mogherini takes a breather from marathon Iran nuclear talks

27 13.07.2015 Инфо

European Union (EU) foreign policy Chief Federica Mogherini was spotted on the balcony of the Palais Coburg Hotel in Vienna, as the marathon nuclear talks between the P5+1 group and Iran continue, Monday. The diplomat appeared on the balcony an hour after a trilateral meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian FM Mohammad Jawad Zarif. Mogherini seemed non-committal when asked how the talks were progressing. After her appearance on the balcony, an unexpected group of protesting American tourists appeared, chanting "no deal" in an effort to persuade their representatives inside to break off talks with Iran. Iran and six powers - the UK, the US, France, Germany, Russia and China - are attempting to reach an agreement on Iran's nuclear programme in the hope of ending a 12 year dispute. Having missed Friday's deadline, the talks on the Iranian nuclear programme have been extended until Monday, the third time an extension has been applied in two weeks.
