Talks between Iran and the P5+1 ended today at a diplomatic impasse as Western negotiators pushed for a freeze on Iran’s production of 20 percent enriched uranium while Iran sought relief from sanctions, including a European Union (EU) oil embargo set to go into effect on July 1. “Having held in-depth discussions with our Iranian counterparts over two days…it’s clear that we both want to make progress, and that there is some common ground,” said Catherine Ashton [PDF], the EU’s foreign-policy chief, who led the P5+1 side. “However, significant differences remain.” Iran’s state controlled IRNA news service reported that the package, and limited sanctions relief, offered by the P5+1 was “outdated, not comprehensive and unbalanced.” The next round of talks are scheduled to be held in Moscow on June 17-19.
