Iran says nuke talks will resume, no date yet
Istanbul, January 22, 2011
Talks between six world powers and Iran, aimed at persuading Tehran to rein in its nuclear programme, will resume but no date or venue has been set, a senior Iranian official said on Saturday.
"There will be talks but stilll we haven't decided on the place or venue," Abolfazl Zohrevand, an aide to Iran's chief negotiator Saeed Jalili, told Reuters at the end of two days of talks in Istanbul between the world powers and Iran.
European Union Foreign Policy chief Catherine Ashton, who led delegations from the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany, said world powers were "disappointed" by Iran's stance during the talks in Istanbul and said Tehran's preconditions were unacceptable. – Reuters
