Report: Next Iran nuclear talks to be in New York

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s state news agency is reporting that the next round of expert-level talks over its contested nuclear program will be held in New York.

The report Sunday by the official ISNA news agency quotes Iran’s senior nuclear negotiator Abbas Araghchi as saying the talks will be held along the sidelines of a meeting about the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in May.
