ISLAMABAD – The next round of talks on the nuclear standoff between Iran and the European bloc of countries, international reports say, would be held on May 15, in Istanbul/Turkey.

The talks teams from both sides will be led respectively by Iran’s security council chief Mr Saeed Jalili and EU foreign policy head Ms Catherine Ashton.

Ashton is reportedly said: \”The coming round (will be) a follow-up to the last rounds of negotiations held in Almaty\”.

Already several USA, UK, France, China and Germany have held several rounds over Iran’s nuclear impasse. The previous rounds produced no tangible result, but the continuity of negotiations was agreed upon. From April 5 to 6 the talks were held in Almaty (Kazakhistan) and earlier on February 26-27.

The key thrust of talks is Iran’s nuclear energy requirements.

The most vocal countries Iran nukes are USA, Israel and their allies. This group accuses Iran of developing strategic nukes instead of civilian offshoot.
