Iran nuclear talks resume in Geneva

World powers resumed negotiations with Iran on Wednesday over Tehran’s disputed nuclear programme, more than three weeks after they last met and gave themselves another seven months to strike a deal.

Political directors of the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany — the so-called P5+1 — held a one-day meeting in Geneva with the Iranians, mediated by the European Union (EU).

The P5+1 failed to meet a November 24 deadline for a comprehensive deal with Iran last months and gave themselves seven more months — until June 30 — to strike a deal. — AFP
