Iran and six world powers will meet on January 28 and 29 for a new round of negotiations over Tehran’s disputed nuclear program, according to the Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA), Reuters reported Wednesday, January 16. A diplomat in Vienna, where the U.N. nuclear agency is based, suggested the dates cited by ISNA could be correct. Both the diplomat and ISNA said the venue had yet to be decided. ISNA did not give a source for its information and said the date could change depending on which location was agreed. Western diplomats had hoped for negotiations – last held in June – to resume in December or mid-January in the face of increasing concern that the decade-long nuclear standoff with Iran could trigger a new war in the Middle East. Russia voiced alarm last week at delays in agreeing on a new round of talks.
