BRUSSELS - The European Union says no date has been fixed for further talks on Iran's nuclear program, while hoping they will be soon, an EU foreign affairs spokesman said.
He was reacting to comments from Iran's top nuclear negotiator, who said earlier on Friday the country had agreed to hold talks in January with the six major powers - represented by the EU - about its atomic program.
Saeed Jalili, Iran's national security council secretary, said in India that Iran had "accepted that these talks should be held in January, but until now, the details have not been finalized." He was speaking through a translator.
However, the EU spokesman would not say whether the powers had agreed to further talks with Iran.
