On the talks on Iranian nuclear issue in Vienna: Remarks by HR/VP Federica Mogherini
EU News 186/2015
We entered the most difficult but also the most real part of the negotiations. We had yesterday two plenaries with all the ministers, several coordination meetings with the E3+3 ministers yesterday, tonight and this morning again.
We have started to discuss at the highest political level the last difficult political issues that we have to solve. We knew it would have been difficult, challenging and sometimes hard. On some things it gets tense, on some others we make progress.
The news is that we are continuing the negotiations in these hours. We might see some ministers leaving in the next hours and then being ready to come back in the coming hours and days. We are continuing to negotiate for the next couple of days.
This does not mean we are extending our deadline. I told you one week ago more or less that we are interpreting our deadline in a flexible way. Which means that we are taking the time, the days, that we still need to finalise the agreement - which is something that is still possible even if now we are getting into the difficult time.
We are still working very hard to finalise this agreement.
