Geneva, Aug 7 IANS | 3 months ago

Senior Iranian and US officials Thursday met in Geneva to continue negotiations on Iran's nuclear programme.

The US State Department Thursday said in a statement that Deputy Secretary of State Bill Burns led the US delegation, which also included Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman and Jake Sullivan, the national security adviser to US vice president Joe Biden.

The Iranian state news agency IRNA said the Iranian delegation is led by Iranian Deputy Foreign Ministers Majid Takht-e Ravanchi and Abbas Araqchi, adding that experts from both countries are also participating in the talks.

The talks are aimed at continuing consultations on the disputed issue and studying ways to make viewpoints closer to each other, IRNA quoted a member of Iran's nuclear negotiating team as saying.

The US mission to the UN and Other International Organizations in Geneva told Xinhua that at present there details regarding Thursday's talks were not available yet.

The P5+1 group, comprising the US, China, France, Russia, Britain plus Germany, and Iran failed to meet the deadline of July 20 to reach a comprehensive agreement, but agreed to extend the talks until Nov 24.
