BRUSSELS/MOSCOW - Global powers and Iran are still discussing when and where to convene talks on a deal for Tehran to rein in its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief, the European Union said on Friday, contradicting a Russian media report.

The Russian news agency Interfax had quoted Mikhail Ulyanov, head of the Foreign Ministry's security and disarmament department, as saying earlier on Friday that an agreement had been reached to hold new talks on Feb. 18 in New York.

Six world powers, including the United States and Russia, have led years of negotiations aimed at persuading Iran to curb parts of its nuclear program, which Western powers fear is aimed at creating atomic weapons capabilities. Iran denies this.

"Discussions on the timing and venue for the next round of talks with Iran are still ongoing. When a decision is taken, we will announce it," said Michael Mann, spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
