BRUSSELS Jan 16 Six world powers and Iran have
yet to agree on a date for a new round of nuclear talks, a
spokesman for the European Union foreign policy chief Catherine
Ashton said on Wednesday.
"Contacts are still ongoing. We are waiting for the Iranians
to respond," spokesman Michael Mann said, when asked about an
Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA) report that negotiations
aiming to resolve the decade-long standoff will resume on Jan.
28 and 29.
Ashton oversees contacts with Iran over its disputed nuclear
programme, on behalf of the six powers: the United States,
Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany.
