WASHINGTON Jan 11 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.
