In the Swiss city of Geneva, Iran and the Group of Six World Powers held talks on Tehran’s nuclear program for the first time in over a year. Prior to the talks, Iranian officials had vowed that the nuclear issue was not on the table, but media quoted officials at the talks as saying that it took up most of the time. After a round-table, the two sides held a series of bilateral meetings before reconvening for 90 minutes of plenary discussions that focused on an Iranian presentation, according to the ‘Washington Post’.
The United States, which held a rare bilateral meeting with Iranian officials last year, did not hold such a meeting this time, the paper reported. The meeting in Geneva is between Iran and the so-called five-plus-one group, which includes Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United States. EU Foreign Affairs chief Catherine Ashton led the Western delegation. On Tuesday, the Geneva talks were still on-going.
