European and Iranian officials expressed an upbeat tone over the latest round of talks on the nation’s civilian nuclear program, saying that there had been “substantial” accomplishments made, and an ambitious timetable was set for further talks.
The next round of talks were scheduled for a two-day meeting in Geneva on October 15 and 16, according to European Union Catherine Ashton, who says that the process will move into practical specifics at that meeting.
Everyone seemed quite pleased with the accomplishments of the latest talk, though Secretary of State John Kerry downplayed the situation, saying that it amounted to little more than a “change in tone” and that Iran hadn’t answered any of America’s questions.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif says that the talks aim at a final resolution of the international complaints and a full removal of sanctions against the nation.
