WASHINGTON – A European Union representative spoke Wednesday with an Iranian counterpart to set up another round of talks between Tehran and world powers.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said that the two sides spoke to set up a possible time and place to meet along with the rest of the so-called P5+1, which includes the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China.

“We continue to make clear to the Iranian side that in that structure the door remains open to talks if they are serious,” Nuland said, including in a bilateral framework.

She indicated she was not familiar with Israeli reports that the US had told Iran it would hold separate one-on-one talks with Iran with a 4- to 5-month time-frame, without consulting with Israel.
