Iran Meets Diplomats Over Nuclear Program

Six world powers and Iran reportedly have agreed to meet to discuss the Iranians’ controversial nuclear program.

Diplomats representing the International Atomic Energy Agency, the nuclear watchdog of the United Nations, have insisted that a meeting is scheduled for April 13, but the location of the meeting is causing dispute among the parties, according to The Associated Press. A formal announcement has yet to be made with details of a meeting.

The diplomats told AP that they believe the venue dispute will be resolved.

The world powers include the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China – otherwise known as the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany.

The news comes amid the backdrop of the Nuclear Security Summit that is being held in Seoul, South Korea.

Iran has not held discussions on its nuclear program since an abrupt end to talks among the six Western powers 14 months ago in Istanbul, Turkey.
