Iran to resume nuclear talks in Vienna

19 December, 2013

BRUSSELS: Tehran will resume negotiations with world powers over its nuclear programme in the coming days, Iran's chief negotiator told a Belgian newspaper Tuesday, after a meeting with the EU's foreign policy chief.

Iran broke off previous talks after Washington expanded its Iranian sanctions blacklist despite an interim deal reached in Geneva on curbing Tehran's nuclear ambitions in exchange for some sanctions relief.

But on Tuesday, Iranian deputy foreign minister Abbas Araqhchi told daily Soir that the EU's Catherine Ashton had assured him that world powers remained committed to implementing the interim deal.

"On the basis of these explanations, we have decided to resume technical negotiations in Vienna," said Araqhchi.

"We are trying at the moment to coordinate a date for that and we will start the negotiations in Vienna soon. It's a question of days," he added.

Under the Geneva deal, Iran agreed that it would freeze parts of its contested nuclear programme in return for some relief from Western sanctions as it negotiates a comprehensive accord to allay suspicions that it is seeking the atomic bomb.
