France: no high level Iran nuke talks meeting
The Associated Press
UNITED NATIONS (AP) France's foreign minister says that he and counterparts from five other world powers will not be joining nuclear talks with Iran because of lack of progress at the negotiations.
Laurent Fabius said Friday the decision was made because there are "no significant advances at this moment," at the talks, which reconvened for a new round eight days ago. He, Secretary of State John Kerry and counterparts from Britain, Russia, China and Germany are at the U.N. General Assembly and had been expected to be involved in the negotiations, being held on the sidelines of the U.N. meeting.
The talks focus on curbing Iran's nuclear program in exchange for an end to sanctions.
