Major powers may meet this week on Iran, U.S. says
WASHINGTON Jan 11 (Reuters) - Major powers may soon meet to discuss Iran's nuclear program, the State Department said on Monday, saying the talks could occur when U.S. Undersecretary of State William Burns travels to Moscow and Madrid this week.
"There may well be a P5+1 meeting coming up in the very near future ... it could be part of this trip," U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters, referring to a group that includes the permanent five members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany.
He said Burns would travel to Moscow on Wednesday and Thursday and to Madrid on Friday.
