GENEVA (AP) -- Talks between Iran and six world powers have ended an upbeat note, with the European Union's top diplomat calling them "very important," in efforts to end international tensions over Tehran's nuclear program.
Catherine Ashton did not go into details on the substance of the talks. She read a statement endorsed by both Iran and the six countries at the negotiations, calling the talks "substantive and forward looking."
Confirming Iranian media reports, the statement says the two sides will meet again in Geneva on Nov. 7-8.
Iran denies wanting nuclear weapons but now says it is ready to negotiate over such concerns and has indicated willingness to curb some atomic programs.
