(Newser) As expected, nuclear talks between Iran and world powers will resume, likely on April 13. Iranian media quoted Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi giving the likely date today; he also noted that Turkey is willing to host the talks and Iran is "considering it" and will reply soon. A diplomat based in Brussels also gave April 13 as the expected date, Reuters reports. During the last meeting between Iran, the US, Russia, France, Germany, Britain, and China last January, an agenda could not even be agreed on.
