VIENNA, Nov 30 (Reuters) - European powers are still awaiting confirmation that they can pick up where they left off in nuclear talks with Iran in June, senior European diplomats said on Tuesday.

The diplomats said there was urgency in reaching a conclusion, but they did not want to impose artificial deadlines.
