Six World Powers to Discuss Iran Nuclear Program

The EU foreign policy chief and nuclear negotiator Catherine Ashton will meet with the foreign ministers of the six major powers at the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York next week on the impasse over Iran’s nuclear program and to “assess the situation and to discuss the way forward,” the EU announced today.

On Tuesday, Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili held a meeting in Istanbul with Ashton. The Iranians described the talks as “useful and constructive.” Ashton’s spokesman said the meeting was “an important opportunity to stress once again to Iran the urgent need to make progress.” (Reuters, 18 September)

Last Thursday, A resolution sponsored by the six powers (The U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany) was passed nearly unanimously at the IAEA Board of Governors (with Cuba casting the only negative vote) censoring Iran for defying the organization’s demands to curb uranium enrichment, especially at 20 percent purity, and failing to address concerns about its suspected nuclear weapon research program at Parchin military base.
