Key foreign ministers to

Foreign ministers from six major powers trying to curb Iran's nuclear power will meet with the European Union's top negotiator next week to discuss prospects and expectations for upcoming talks with Iranian officials, Britain's UN Ambassador said Wednesday. The ministerial meeting is expected to take place on Sept. 23, on the sidelines of the annual high-level meeting of the UN General Assembly, Ambassador John Sawers said. "It's an important opportunity for the six ministers and (EU foreign policy chief Javier) Solana to have an exchange about how these discussions and dialogue with Iran should be taken forward, what the perspective is, what we're looking for and what a reasonable degree of progress to expect would be," Sawers said. The US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany have tried unsuccessfully for several years to rein in Iran's nuclear program.
