Amid Increased Tension, Iran Nuclear Talks Set for April

As tensions among Israel, the U.S. and Iran continue to rise, talks between Iran and six major powers on its nuclear program will start in mid-April in Istanbul, Turkey, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The group, which includes the U.S., Russia, China, Germany, the U.K. and France, will be meeting for the first time since January of 2011, when talks broke down after only a few days. The Obama administration and its diplomatic partners are preparing to ask Tehran to cease enriching uranium at levels close to weapons grade.

 

The New York Times reports that state media in Iran said that Tehran was ready to resume talks “based on common grounds.”

The talks come at a time of increased tensions, as speculation about a possible Israeli attack against Iran’s nuclear capabilities continues.
