German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier says the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany have reached a united stance during the ongoing talks with Iran over its nuclear energy program.

“We discussed all proposals today once again. The main thing is for everyone on the part of the P5+1 who conducts talks to work out a single position and reach out with it to Iran. It happened today,” Steinmeier said in Vienna on Sunday.

“It is time when an agreement could be struck for the decade of talks,” he told journalists, Itar-Tass reported.

Steinmeier noted that the ongoing talks in Vienna are the last chance to peacefully resolve the dispute over Iran’s nuclear energy activities, stressing, “Little time remains.”

Iran and the six countries -- the United States, Russia, France, Britain, China and Germany -- formally kicked off their sixth round of talks this year in Vienna on July 3.

The two sides have been discussing ways to sort out their differences and achieve a final deal that would end the decade-old dispute over Iran’s nuclear energy program.

The two sides sealed an interim deal in Geneva, Switzerland, on November 23, 2013. The deal came into force in January and expires on July 20, but can be extended depending on the agreement of all parties involved.
