TEHRAN, May 8 (Xinhua) -- Iran said Thursday that its expert- level nuclear talks with world powers concluded on Wednesday were "fruitful," Press TV reported.
Delegates from Iran and the so-called P5+1 group, which includes United Nations Security Council permanent members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany, had " fruitful discussions" during their two-day talks in New York, Hamid Baeidinejad, who heads Iran's negotiating team, said.
"In these negotiations, the latest expert views on the technical nuclear issues were studied," Baeidinejad said ahead of a fresh round of high-level nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+ 1 group, slated for May 13 in the Austrian capital of Vienna.
The fourth round of talks will be held to draft a comprehensive agreement that allows Iran to continue its nuclear program while reassuring the powers it will not be used for military purposes.
Iran and the P5+1 clinched an interim deal in Geneva last November, in which Iran agreed to cap its nuclear program in exchange for easing some financial sanctions against it. The Geneva deal took effect on January 20.
