Iran Agrees to Resume Talks on Nuclear Program Feb. 26, EU Says

Feb. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Iran agreed to hold the next round of talks with world powers over the Persian Gulf nation’s nuclear program on Feb. 26, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said.

The meeting will take place in Almaty, Kazakhstan, Ashton said today in a statement. Ali Bagheri, Iran’s deputy nuclear negotiator, agreed to the arrangement, Ashton said.

Ashton “hopes that the talks will be productive and that concrete progress can be made towards a negotiated solution to meet the international community’s concerns about the Iranian nuclear program,” according to the statement.

Iran insists its nuclear program is peaceful, while Israel and the U.S. say the Iranians are pursuing atomic weapons.

The meeting in Kazakhstan would be the first round of talks since the breakdown of negotiations between Iran and the so-called P5+1 -- which includes China, France, Germany, Russia, the U.K. and the U.S. -- last June in Moscow.
