Iran, Germany to discuss nuclear issues in Tehran
(06-10 14:15)

German officials will visit Tehran on Sunday for talks on Iran's nuclear drive, top Iranian negotiator and deputy foreign minister Abbas Araqchi said.
The meeting will follow similar discussions with American, Russian and French negotiators this week ahead of the resumption of political talks between Iran and the main P5+1 group of world powers on Monday in Vienna.
The flurry of bilateral talks seek to bridge differences that have so far hindered progress in negotiations over Iran's atomic program, which Western powers suspect masks military objectives.
Tehran has long insisted that its nuclear activities are entirely peaceful.
Representatives from Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council -- Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States -- plus Germany are seeking a comprehensive accord with Iran.
Next week's talks in Vienna come one month ahead of a July 20 deadline for a final settlement, following an interim agreement struck in November last year.--AFP
