Iran’s foreign minister and the EU’s top foreign policy chief have launched a new round of nuclear talks between Tehran and six world powers, putting a reported tiff behind them.
The two sides hope to reach an agreement by July that trims Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for an end to sanctions choking Tehran’s economy. Tuesday’s negotiations are the second in monthly meetings on a comprehensive deal.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohamad Javad Zarif is leading his country’s delegation, while EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton negotiates at least formally on behalf of the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany.
Iranian media reported Monday that Zarif canceled his usual pre-talks dinner with Ashton to protest her recent meeting with Iranian opposition figures.
