Iran nuclear talks to resume mid-April in Turkey – NHK

Sunday, April 1, 2012

Iran and 6 major countries are to resume talks on its nuclear program in mid-April after a break of more than one year.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton revealed the plan to reporters during her visit to Saudi Arabia on Saturday. The 2 days of talks are scheduled to reopen on April 13th in Istanbul, Turkey.

The move comes as the United States and European countries are stepping up their sanctions against Iran for its nuclear efforts. Israel warns of a possible military attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, adding tension.

Clinton said time is running out for diplomacy over Iran’s nuclear program.

She said it is incumbent on Iran to demonstrate by its actions that it is a willing partner and to participate in these negotiations with an effort to obtain concrete results.

Iran maintains that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, such as power generation.
