Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani, said on Thursday the Foreign Ministry would take over talks with world powers on Iran’s contested nuclear programme, in an apparent move to smooth the diplomatic process after years of control by conservative hardliners.

Ashton leads talks with Iran over its nuclear programme on behalf of the United States, China, Russia, Britain, Germany and France.

“The High Representative called Foreign Minister Zarif this morning, following the news that the Foreign Ministry will be responsible for the nuclear negotiations,” Ashton’s spokesman Michael Mann said.

“They agreed that they would meet in New York during the United Nations General Assembly week.”

The six powers suspect Iran hopes to achieve the capability to make bombs via its nuclear programme. Tehran says it needs atom power for electricity generation and medical research. (Reporting by Justyna Pawlak; Editing by Alison Williams)
