MOSCOW (Reuters) - Iran and world powers agreed on Wednesday that experts will meet to discuss Tehran’s nuclear program in Istanbul on March 17-18 and negotiations will resume on April 5-6, Russia’s negotiator said.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was also quoted by Itar-tass news agency as confirming that the six powers had offered to ease sanctions on Iran if it stops enriching uranium to 20 percent fissile purity at its Fordow facility - a short technical step from weapons grade.
