VIENNA - An Iranian letter on resuming nuclear talks with world powers is ambiguous but signals "the start of opening up" from the Islamic Republic, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Thursday.

Iran handed over the letter to European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who handles contacts with Tehran on behalf of the six major powers, on Wednesday.

"Madame Ashton received a letter from Mr (Iranian chief nuclear negotiator Saeed) Jalili responding to her letter in October last year," Juppe told reporters during a visit to Vienna.

"In our eyes it remains ambiguous, but constitutes the start of opening up from Iran which says it is ready to talk about its nuclear program," he said.
