DUBAI - The next round of nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers will take place in Vienna on June 16-20, senior Iranian nuclear negotiator Abbas Araghchi was reported as saying by the IRNA official state news agency.
There were no further details in the agency's report late on Saturday about the planned discussions, which are aimed at ending a decade-old standoff over Iran's nuclear program.
Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful aims such as power generation and medicine. The West and Israel suspect it is a cover for acquiring the capability to make nuclear weapons.
The latest round of negotiations in Vienna last week resulted in little progress.
The six powers want Iran to agree to scale back uranium enrichment and other sensitive nuclear activity and accept more rigorous UN inspections to deny it any capability of quickly producing atomic bombs, in exchange for an end to sanctions.
In a related development, Iranian media reported that an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) delegation would visit Tehran on Monday to discuss Iran's nuclear work.
