Finally, Serious Negotiations in Geneva on Iran’s Nuclear Program

Officials from the P5+1 countries meet with Iranian officials in Geneva on October 15 for talks on Iran’s nuclear program.

Based on available evidence, the atmosphere and content of the two days of six power talks in Geneva with Iran’s new negotiating team bodes well for the chances of achieving an acceptable resolution to the Iran nuclear crisis.

Although full details of the exchanges are not available and the two sides have agreed not to reveal the details, it is clear this round was different than others conducted during the past two years.

In her closing press conference, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton described the talks as “intensive and important,” and “the most detailed we’ve ever had.” Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araghchi took note of the “highly positive atmosphere.” In the Joint Statement issued at the conclusion of the round, the negotiations were described as “substantive and forward-looking.”
