VIENNA - Major powers are willing to meet with Iran within weeks if Tehran is prepared to "engage seriously in meaningful discussions" on its disputed nuclear program, the European Union's foreign policy chief said in a letter to Tehran on Friday.

"When moving to continuation of our talks, it is crucial to look for concrete results," Catherine Ashton said in the letter addressed to Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili.

"We have to ensure that when we meet again we can make real progress on the nuclear issue so that both sides can draw concrete benefits," said the letter, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters.
