Iran, P5+1 start nuclear talks


17:35, March 18, 2013

ISTANBUL, March 18 (Xinhua) -- Iran and the P5+1 group (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) started fresh nuclear talks in Turkey's Istanbul city on Monday.

The talks began at 10:00 a.m. local time (0800 GMT) in Swiss Hotel in Istanbul, although consultations had begun on Sunday shortly after the delegations from the P5+1 arrived in Istanbul. The closed-door meeting is set to discuss a revised proposal that requires Iran to "suspend" but not permanently halt its 20 percent uranium enrichment, and to disable the work at the deeply buried Fordow facility, in exchange for modest relief from sanctions.

The meeting will also discuss the agenda for the next round of talks to be held in Almaty, Kazakhstan in April. Participating parties are expected to issue a statement at the end of their two- day talks.
