Zarif meets Ashton for 2nd time in Geneva in less than 24 hours

Geneva, Oct 15, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton met for the second time in Geneva, Switzerland, after the negotiators of Iran and the six world powers wrapped up their talks on Tuesday evening.

According to IRNA’s correspondent in Geneva, the meeting between Zarif and Ashton started less than two hours after Iran and G-5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) ended their afternoon talks in the Swiss city.

Zarif had a dinner meeting with Ashton Monday night a few hours after his arrival in Geneva.

Ashton's Spokesman Michael Mann told the media on Tuesday that the atmosphere of the talks in the last night dinner meeting was different from the previous ones.

Negotiating teams from Iran and the Group 5+1 had two rounds of talks in Geneva on Tuesday.
