Russia says seeking agreement on nuclear talks with Iran

MOSCOW - Russia says it is working hard to firm up plans for a new round of talks between global powers and Iran over Tehran's nuclear program, which the West suspects is aimed at developing nuclear weapons capability.

Iranian news agency ISNA said on Wednesday that Iran and six world powers would resume talks in late January but a European Union official said the two sides had yet to agree a date. No venue has been agreed for the talks, either.

"Russia is concerned about this and we continue to work, including with our Iranian partners, to resolve this issue as soon as possible," state-run news agency Itar-Tass quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying.
