Russia’s Lavrov urges compromise in Iran talks

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Friday that political will was needed to reach agreement in talks on Iran’s nuclear programme in Vienna, but hoped common sense would prevail and a compromise would be found.

“We are sticking to our evaluation that all the elements of an agreement are already on the table and the task of diplomats now is to correctly put together a package and show political will,” Lavrov told journalists in Moscow after discussing the talks with visiting Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal.

The Russian diplomat called for an agreement that is “based on the balance of interests and is not subjected to attempts at the last minute to haggle something beyond what is realistic.”

“I am proceeding from the assumption that in the end common sense and the aim to reach a compromise on this long-standing problem will after all prevail,” Lavrov said.
