BRUSSELS - European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton has agreed to discuss future steps in nuclear talks with Iran's chief negotiator, a spokeswoman said on Thursday.

It would be the first contact between Ashton and Iran's Saeed Jalili since EU governments imposed new sanctions on Tehran in mid-October, and could pave the way for a resumption in negotiations about Iran's atomic program.

"(There will be) a phone contact between the High Representative and chief Iranian nuclear negotiator Dr. Jalili in order to discuss the next steps in our negotiations," Maja Kocijancic said.

She did not say when the call between Ashton, who represents six global powers in dealings with Iran, and Jalili would take place. The planned discussions would follow preparatory talks among lower-level diplomats.
