Iran, World Powers Resume Nuclear Talks

Iran and six world powers opened a new round of talks Friday about what concessions Tehran must make on its nuclear program in exchange for a continued reduction in sanctions.

The talks in New York involve officials from Iran, the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.

Iran has said it is committed to reaching a nuclear deal.  But analysts say the chances for a breakthrough are slim ahead of the November 24 deadline that was set after the two sides failed to reach a July target date for a deal.

Earlier this week, U.S. and Iranian diplomats held bilateral talks on Iran’s nuclear ambitions.   

The two sides reached an interim deal last year to reduce U.S. sanctions in exchange for Iran freezing its uranium enrichment program.
