American and Iranian Delegations To hold Bilateral Meetings
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif arrived in New York on Tuesday and held talks with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton today ahead of the next round of nuclear talks between Iran and P5+1 on 19 September on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. The latest meetings are held amid growing concerns that the two sides are not close to strike a final deal prior to 24 November expiration of the current interim agreement.
UPDATE: The American and Iranian delegations will be holding bilateral meetings on Wednesday night and Thursday in New York, the U.S. State Department announced.
