The Exterior Ministers of Iran, China, Israel, Russia, US, Germany, as well as the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Frederica Mogherini have renewed the diplomatic talks regarding the Iranian nuclear program.

Agreement on the project needs to be reached by the end of March in Geneva, leaving juts two days for active negotiations.

Meanwhile, a number of analysts have been warning that despite the intensive talks, the final solution might not be agreed upon by tomorrow.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov noted that all countries participating in the talks are determined to reach common ground, Reuters reported.

''Iran must commit to a comprehensive, durable and verifiable deal - a deal that ensures Iran's nuclear programme remains exclusively peaceful,'' stated UK's Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond at a news conference in London past Friday, as quoted by the Daily Mail. ''There will no doubt be difficult decisions required on all sides in the coming days and weeks. For our part, I remain clear that no deal is better than a bad deal. But we should also be clear-eyed about the alternative.''

Representatives will be insisting on a 10-year moratorium over the riskiest porcesses in the Iranian nuclear program. Teheran, on the other hand, has been denying any attempts of nuclear weapon development and insisted on lifting of all economic sanctions.

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced he will be leaving the talks for the time being and will return in case there is any progress on the issue.
