Iran and world powers will resume talks next month in New York on reaching a long-term nuclear deal, a senior US official said Monday.
"It is our understanding that those talks will be in New York in mid-February, with dates still being confirmed on schedule, but it will be around that time period," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
She confirmed that Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton had agreed to hold the next round of talks in the US metropolis, rather than in Geneva where the negotiations have been held so far.
