No Agreement Reached in Talks on Iran’s Nuclear Program

iStockphoto(ALMATY, Kazakhstan) -- Iran and the major powers have failed to reach an agreement after two days of talks on Iran's nuclear program taking place in Kazakhstan.

Iran had been negotiation with six world powers, the United States, Russia, China, the UK, France, and Germany, over Iran’s nuclear program. Iran denies that its intentions are anything but peaceful, but world powers are wary of covert nuclear weapons.

Iran was to stop working on its more sensitive nuclear activates, and in return some tough economic sanctions against the country would be eased, though no such deal was reached.

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton admitted that they are not even close to an agreement.

"It became clear that the positions... remain far apart on the substance," Ashton said.
