Iranian Nuclear Talks : Has the Time for Diplomacy Run Out ?

21-06-2012

The negotiations on the Iranian nuclear programme between Iran and the P5+1 group (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany), which resumed in Moscow on 18 and 19 June 2012, have failed to produce a deal. Iran reiterated its right do develop nuclear energy under the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT) without further limitations. On the other hand, the P5+1 countries held to their aim of curtailing Iran's enrichment activities. The two parties failed even to agree on a new round of negotiations.
