Iran and six powers adjourn nuclear talks to April
Catherine Ashton says the talks were ‘substantive and useful’
World powers and Iran adjourned what they said was “substantive and useful” nuclear talks until April 7-9, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said on Wednesday.
Ashton said the seven nations - the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain, Germany and Iran - held talks between March 18 and 19, on Iran's uranium enrichment program, the country's Arak heavy water reactor and Western sanctions against Iran.
“We had substantive and useful discussions covering a set of issues including (uranium) enrichment, the Arak reactor, civil nuclear cooperation and sanctions,” Ashton told reporters in Vienna.
