VIENNA - A senior US official said on Wednesday that an Iranian letter to the EU's foreign policy chief did not contain any new commitments by Tehran to fully address international concerns about its disputed nuclear program.

Glyn Davies, the US ambassador to the UN nuclear watchdog, said the six major powers were discussing how to diplomatically react to the letter from Iranian nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili to European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, in which Jalili said Iran was ready to resume talks.

But, "I don't see from the standpoint of the work that is going on here anything new by way of an Iranian commitment to fully address the concerns that the international community has," Davies told reporters.
