Diplomat: World Powers to Make 'Significant New Iran Offer'

World powers will make Iran an offer with "significant new elements" in a bid to resolve the dispute over its nuclear program at talks next week in Kazakhstan, a western diplomat said Wednesday, according to AFP.

The next round of talks with Iran under the '5+1' format -- UN Security Council members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States, plus Germany -- will be held on February 26 in Almaty after a long gap.
