GENEVA - The US delegation to six-power negotiations with Iran on its nuclear program held bilateral talks with Tehran's delegates on Tuesday in a meeting a senior US official described as "useful."

Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman, effectively the State Department's third-ranking diplomat, is leading the US delegation. Sherman and other US officials met Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi and other Iranian delegates, a senior State Department official said.

"The discussion was useful, and we look forward to continuing our discussions in tomorrow's meetings with the full P5+1 (six powers) and Iran," the official said on condition of anonymity, adding that the talks lasted approximately one hour. Iranian media also reported that the meeting took place.
