Iran Agrees to New Nuclear Talks

Iran will hold talks in January with six world powers about its nuclear program, the country’s top nuclear negotiator said on Friday. The U.S., Russia, France, Britain, Germany, and China have held three rounds of talks with Iran since April, but have not been able to achieve success. The powers want to ensure that Iran’s uranium-enrichment program is for clean energy, while Iran denies that the program is for nuclear weapons. Negotiator Saeed Jalil said, “We have accepted that these talks should be held in January, but until now, the details have not been finalized.”
