Iran: Nuclear talks with Europe may continue soon

Iran said Sunday that it would likely resume talks with European officials over its disputed nuclear program in the next few days. The talks would be a follow-up to discussions in Madrid at the end of May between EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana and Ali Larijani, Iran's chief nuclear negotiator. "Negotiations between Solana and Larijani will probably be held in the coming days," Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammed Ali Hosseini said Sunday during his weekly press conference. "Contacts have continued between the two parties to decide the time and place of the talks."
