Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his American counterpart John Kerry started a new round of talks in the Swiss town of Lausanne to hammer out an agreement on Iran’s nuclear problem.

The two ministers were scheduled to confer on Sunday evening, but the meeting was postponed due to Kerry’s tardy arrival in Lausanne.

Iran and US started a new round of nuclear discussions in Lausanne on Sunday. Head of Iran Atomic Energy Organization (IAEO) Ali Akbar Salehi and US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz attended the meeting.

Abbas Araqchi and Majid Takht Ravanchi deputies to Iranian Foreign Minister, IAEO Deputy Head Behrooz Kamalvandi, and US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman were also present in the discussions.

Iran and the Group 5+1 (US, Russia, France, Britain, China, and Germany) are working to reach a comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear program based on the Joint Plan of Action signed in Geneva on November 24, 2013, and its 7-month extension.

The current round of talks is scheduled to continue until March 20.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
