No breakthrough in Iran nuclear talks, sides agree to keep talking

UNITED NATIONS, Sept 26 (Reuters) – Iran and six world
powers made little progress in overcoming significant
disagreements in the most recent round of nuclear talks,
including on uranium enrichment, Iranian and Western diplomats
close to the negotiations said on Friday.

Officials from Iran and the six countries had cautioned
ahead of the talks in New York that a breakthrough was unlikely
to end sanctions on Tehran, although they had hoped substantial
progress could be made in narrowing disagreements.
