Iran Nuclear Talks Make Little Progress, Head to Moscow

Iran and world powers agreed to hold a new round of talks about the Persian Gulf nation’s nuclear program next month after failing to bridge differences during two days of negotiations in Baghdad.

Negotiators from the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany, China and Russia plan to meet their Iranian counterparts June 18 and 19 in Moscow. It will mark the third attempt in three months to address international worries that Iran’s atomic energy program may be a cover for secret weapons work, and Iran’s concerns about sanctions and diplomatic isolation.
