U.S. President Barack Obama has said Washington has not ‘given anything away' in new talks with Tehran, and defended his continued push for a diplomatic resolution on the dispute over Iran's nuclear programmes.

Obama's statement came after Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the U.S. and other world powers had given Tehran a ‘freebie' by agreeing to hold more talks next month.

Obama emphasized that he would not let the talks turn into a ‘stalling process,' and added that he still believed there was a window for diplomacy.

“So far, at least, we haven't given away anything, other than the opportunity for us to negotiate and see if Iran comes to the table in good faith,” Fox News quoted Obama, as saying.Negotiators from the U.S. and five other world powers recently met in Turkey for a fresh round of nuclear talks with Iran.- ANI
