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.
