Iran: World powers asked for delay in nuclear talks

Iran has blamed world powers for delays in long-stalled talks over its controversial nuclear program, after Western diplomats said Iranian uncertainty over the venue had delayed the negotiations.


State broadcaster IRIB said the world powers asked Iran to postpone the talks from agreed dates in January to February, through deputy EU foreign policy chief Helga Schmid who spoke to Iran's deputy nuclear negotiator Ali Bagheri late yesterday. (AFP)
