Key Iran nuclear talks convene Monday

VIENNA (AP) - International negotiators are holding key talks with Iran that could see it handing over most of its enriched uranium for processing abroad.

Iran would not have enough material for a nuclear weapon if it exported most of its enriched uranium. Western nations suspect Tehran of seeking to build a weapon, but Iran denies that.

Monday's talks follow a meeting between six world powers and Iran earlier this month. The West says that Iran agreed to transfer the uranium to Russia and have it turned into fuel for a small research reactor.

Monday's talks involve the U.S., Russia, France, Iran and experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency.
