Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy R. Sherman will travel to Strasbourg, France, June 11-12, for consultations with her P5+1 counterparts (China, France, Germany, Russia, U.K. and EU) in preparation for talks with Iran in Moscow on June 18-19.

As part of our dual-track policy to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, the United States remains united with other P5+1 partners in our commitment to serious preparations for the Moscow round of talks, and to enabling the diplomatic track to succeed. Iran has the opportunity to begin addressing international concerns over its nuclear program by coming to Moscow prepared to take concrete steps in response to the proposals presented in Baghdad.
