Constructive Start To Iran Talks, Says UK
"This meeting was a constructive start to what we hope will be an intensive process of dialogue dealing with the core issues of Iran's nuclear programme."
- Barry Marston, UK Foreign Office spokesman
The British government has welcomed the encouraging start in the resumption of six-party talks with Iran in Geneva over its nuclear programme, which it hopes will continue in the spirit of goodwill and flexibility.
Thursday's talks in Geneva were also hailed by US President Barack Obama as a "constructive beginning" in what could help diminish tensions provoked over Iran's civilian nuclear programme
