Russia alarmed by lack of agreement with Iran on nuclear talks

Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov MOSCOW (Reuters) – Moscow is alarmed that no date or venue has been agreed for a new round of talks between global powers and Iran over Tehran’s nuclear programme, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Friday.

Iran, which denies Western accusations it is seeking to develop a capability to make nuclear weapons, said last week it had agreed to resume talks in January with six powers. Ryabkov said there was no final agreement on a date or venue.
