Iran and the major powers made “tangible progress” in a meeting held last Wednesday in Vienna, an Iranian negotiator told Kyodo News on Monday.

“In the last expert-level meeting in Vienna, Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) had tangible progress in technical issues,” the senior diplomat said on condition of anonymity. The diplomat’s remarks echoed those of Wendy Sherman, the top US negotiator in nuclear talks, who said on Thursday the two sides “have made impressive progress on issues that originally seemed intractable.”
