BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- The third round of Iranian nuclear talks in Vienna "made some progress," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei on Thursday said.
"Generally speaking, the atmosphere of the talks was positive," Hong told the ministry's daily press briefing in Beijing.
Iran and 6 major states, so called P5+1 group (Britain, China, France, Russia, United States plus Germany), are striving to clinch a comprehensive agreement by July 20 and end the Iranian nuclear deadlock.
During two days of talks, all sides took part in discussion on specific elements of the agreement, Hong said, and all sides showed willingness to reach the final deal at an early date.
Negotiations over the final agreement still face obstacles and differences are inevitable, Hong said, as the issue is a complicated one.
The spokesman stressed the constructive attitude of all sides, while dealing with differences, and willingness to resolve each other's concerns through negotiations.
China will continue to play its constructive role in the next round of talks to reach a final agreement at an early date, said Hong.
