World powers back Obama approach towards Iran
World powers on Wednesday said they were committed to a diplomatic solution on the issue of Iran's nuclear works and welcomed U.S. President Barack Obama's offer to talk directly with Tehran. "(We) emphasise a common commitment to a diplomatic solution based on the dual track strategy," said a German official who quoted from a joint statement from the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany.
According to Reuters, the powers called on Tehran to comply fully with the United Nations over its nuclear programme. A European official said there was no talk of new sanctions at the meeting and that a new gathering was planned after the United States had completed a review of its Iran policy.
The next meeting could take place in London in the second half of next month, the official said.
