World Powers and Iran in Talks over Iran's Nuclear program

Wednesday, 27 February 2013 - 14:09



World powers and Iran exchanged offers at "useful" talks in Kazakhstan aimed at breaking a decade of deadlock over Tehran's disputed nuclear drive.

The meeting in the Kazakh city of Almaty comes as sanctions bite against the Islamic republic and Israel still refuses to rule out air strikes to knock out Iran's suspected nuclear weapons drive.

There was no hint of an initial breakthrough with the first round of closed-door meetings stretching late into last evening as the parties agreed to resume the talks today.
