Mogherini’s remarks came as several foreign ministers from six major countries are finishing their meetings with their Iranian counterpart in the ongoing Iranian nuclear talks in Austria’s capital Vienna, Xinhua news agency reported.
“We are continuing the negotiation… Some ministers are leaving, but will be back in the coming hours or days,” she said, rejecting the idea that the talks could be once again extended as the ministers were leaving Vienna.
There are still gaps between Iran and Western countries as the talks entered the self-imposed deadline of July 7.
The EU foreign policy chief said the deadline of the talks could be treated in a flexible way to give the negotiators more time to finalise the deal.
“We are continuing to negotiate for the next couple of days… We entered the most difficult and sensitive part of the talks,” Mogherini stressed.
