Officials from Iran and the six world powers have started a new round of talks over Iran’s nuclear program in Geneva, Switzerland.

The Iranian delegation arrived in Geneva on Wednesday to hold consultations prior to the talks.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday that a deal was possible to be made in this week talks.

“We need to see an endgame that we can all agree on and take a first step on all sides,” Zarif said, adding that all sides had boxed themselves into an unnecessary crisis over the last eight years.

Zarif who is currently in Geneva for the negotiations, will leave the Swiss city for Rome on Thursday after attending a meeting, where EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton will also be present.

He will head back to Geneva to continue the talks.

The negotiations will continue for another day, on Friday (November 8), in the Swiss city.

The previous round of the talks between Iran and the six world powers was held in Geneva on October 15-16, during which Zarif presented Iran’s proposal titled “Closing an Unnecessary Crisis, and Opening a New Horizon” to the six countries.
