EU High Representative Catherine Ashton, on behalf of the E3+3 (France, Germany, UK, China, Russia and USA) and Iran have asked Austria to host the upcoming round of talks between E3/EU+3 and Iran in Vienna starting on 8 April 2014.
Austria has provided, as part of its foreign policy, its strong support to achieve a diplomatic solution to the Iranian nuclear issue and therefore welcomes the possibility to provide the venue for these important negotiations. The meeting in Vienna constitutes the start of talks on a comprehensive agreement between E3/EU+3 and Iran.
Media events: At present, no media events have been announced, however, press briefings during and/or after the talks are foreseen.
The venue for press briefings is the Media Centre in the Austria Center Vienna
