Iran says talks with big powers to be held in January, but no details decided yet
Iran has agreed to hold talks with six major powers about its atomic program in January but the date and venue has yet to be decided, the country's top nuclear negotiator said today.
"We have accepted that these talks should be held in January, but until now, the details have not been finalized," Jalili said through a translator during a trip to India.
Later, an EU foreign affairs spokesman said the European Union assured no date has been fixed for further talks on Iran's nuclear programme, while hoping they will be soon.
Discussions on a date and venue are still ongoing, said Michael Mann, a spokesman for EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton, who leads negotiations on behalf of the six powers - the United States, Russia, France, Britain, Germany and China.
