Nuclear Scientist's Death Dominates Iran Talks as Minister Blames Agents

U.S. and European diplomats resume a second round of talks with Iran on Dec. 7, seeking to shift the focus to the Persian Gulf nation's nuclear program instead of the death of one of its scientist during a bombing.


Iran used the meeting on Dec. 6 in Geneva with the so-called P5+1 — China, France, Russia, the U.S., the U.K. and Germany — to talk about the Nov. 29 bombing in Tehran that killed an Iranian nuclear scientist. Iran has blamed foreign agents for the bombing. 


The two-day meeting is the latest bid to avert a clash with Iran, holder of the world's second-biggest oil and natural gas reserves, over its nuclear program. Instead, Iran's envoy to the Geneva talks, Saeed Jalili, opened the session by condemning the killing of physicist Majid Shahriari, state-run Mehr news agency reported, citing an unidentified Iranian official in Geneva.


The U.S. has said it wasn't involved, while Israel and the U.K. have declined to comment.
