U.S., Iran to hold nuclear talks in Switzerland on Friday, Saturday

(Reuters) – U.S. and Iranian negotiators will hold talks about Iran’s nuclear program in Switzerland on Friday and Saturday, the U.S. State Department said.

Negotiators from Iran and six major powers failed to meet a self-imposed deadline in November to clinch an agreement that is seen as crucial to reducing the risk of a wider Middle East war. A deal would curb Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for relief from economic sanctions.

U.S. Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman is scheduled to travel to Berlin on Wednesday for talks with political directors of the Group of Seven nations, which includes Britain, Canada,France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States, the State Department said. Germany hosts the G7 summit this year.
