Diplomats: Iran nuclear talks likely to resume in weeks

March 27, 2012 11:52

VIENNA - Iran and six world powers are expected to resume in the next few weeks long-stalled talks about the Islamic state's disputed nuclear program, diplomatic sources said on Tuesday.

One Western diplomat said he expected a meeting to be held on April 13-14, while another envoy said those dates had not been confirmed and a third suggested later in the month was possible. The venue was unclear, they said.

A spokesman for European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who handles dealings with Iran on behalf of the big powers, said "nothing has been decided yet" regarding the time and place for a meeting.

The last meeting over the nuclear work that Iran says is peaceful but the West suspects has military links took place in Istanbul in January 2011, when the two sides failed even to agree on an agenda.
