Ashton 'Cautiously Optimistic' About Latest Iran Nuclear Talks

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said Wednesday she was cautiously optimistic over the outcome of talks this week between Iran and world powers on Tehran's nuclear drive, AFP reports.

The comments came as officials from the so-called P5+1 group prepare to meet negotiators from Iran in Kazakhstan on Friday, hoping for a response to a revised offer that would ease some sanctions in return for concessions over Iran’s uranium enrichment activities.
