Nuclear talks between Iran and PE5 + 1 extend to second day

Baghdad: Nuclear talks between the Iran and the PE5 + 1 (Russia, China, the UK, France, Germany, the USA) concerning Iran's controversial nuclear programme held in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Wednesday. 

The talk has been extended to an unscheduled second day after diplomats failed to reach agreement over the same.

Negotiators from the US and the five other world powers sat down with a team of Iranian authorities hoping to reach specific goals in the long impasse over the Iranian nuclear program. World power country made Iran an offer if it stopped processing medium-enriched uranium, which can be used to make nuclear weapons, EU officials said. But, Iran pointed out that uranium enrichment is its non-negotiable right.

Iran is demanding that the West outline timetables and steps ahead in gradually addressing international concerns over the Islamic Republic's nuclear ambitions, specifically reports that Tel Aviv and Washington are planning an attack on Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.

The US has been noncommittal about its immediate goals.

Few believe the discussions in Baghdad will yield to developments in the conflicts over Iran's nuclear program.
