DUBAI - Iran and world powers will hold talks over Iran's disputed nuclear program on Feb. 26 in Kazakhstan, Iran's state news agency IRNA reported on Tuesday.

Iran's Supreme National Security Council announced the agreement had been made during a telephone conversation on Tuesday between Ali Bagheri, Iran's deputy nuclear negotiator, and his European Union counterpart Helga Schmid, IRNA said.

Iran is engaged in a stand-off with the United States and some of its Western allies, who believe Tehran may be trying to develop weapons capability under the cover of a civilian nuclear program.

Iran has repeatedly denied that is its intention, and has met with world powers, dubbed the P5+1, several times for negotiations but the talks have stalled since a round held last June in Moscow.
