Ashton to stay on as EU special adviser on Iran nuke talks

"To ensure the continuity of negotiations, which require full-time dedication, Catherine Ashton will facilitate the talks," an EU statement said.
Iran and six powers failed last month to resolve a 12-year stand-off over Tehran's nuclear ambitions, and gave themselves seven more months to clinch an historic deal.
