The Latest Talks on Iran’s Nuclear Programme Ended without Agreement

Apr 7, 2013 12:20 IST

The latest talks on Iran's nuclear programme ended without agreement on 6 April 2013. After a two-day meeting in Kazakhstan, the major powers failed to break the deadlock. The five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the US, Russia, China, the UK and France - plus Germany had asked Iran to stop enriching uranium up to 20 percent in exchange for some relief from sanctions.

Iran stated that it would not compromise on its right to enrich uranium. Given the fact that the Presidential elections are scheduled to be held in Iran in June 2013, it is unlikely that there would be a breakthrough in the talks.
