Iran, UNSC talks being held in Kazakhstan

Almaty, April 5 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A new round of talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (P5+1) commenced in the Kazakh city of Almaty Friday as the sides struggle to find a compromise on Tehran’s controversial nuclear programme.

At the previous round of talks Feb 27-28, also held in Almaty, the world powers offered to ease economic sanctions against Iran in exchange for the closure of its underground Fordo enrichment facility and an undertaking to halt the enrichment of uranium to 20 percent.

The Islamic republic wants the international community recognise its inherent right to develop nuclear capacity for peaceful purposes. But P5+1 negotiators insist that Tehran must first prove that its nuclear development program is not designed for making nuclear weapons.
