Iran's nuclear chief suggests talks in September

 Iran's chief nuclear negotiator has suggested in a letter to the European Union's foreign affairs chief that talks could be held as soon as September on issues including Tehran's nuclear programme.

The proposal is the first clear indication that Tehran is willing to engage with world powers on its atomic programme since the United Nations imposed more sanctions on Iran last month, a move designed to stall Iranian uranium enrichment.

In the July 6 letter, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters, Saeed Jalili asked Catherine Ashton for reassurances on three issues before any talks are held.
