VILNIUS (Reuters) - The European Union's foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said on Friday she hoped to set a date for nuclear talks with Iran when she meets Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif during a United Nations gathering this month.
Speaking in Vilnius ahead of a meeting of EU foreign ministers, Ashton said world powers wanted to move quickly to resume negotiations over the Iranian program, which they fear has military intentions. Iran denies having any plans to make nuclear bombs.
