Iran talks begin amid low expectations

GENEVA (AP) - A chief negotiator says "Don't expect much of anything" in talks with Iran about the country's nuclear program.

Iran is meeting with six world powers in Geneva for the first talks in more than a year.

Tehran says it doesn't want nuclear weapons, as it builds on its capacity to make such arms. And neither Israel nor the U.S. has ruled out military action if Iran fails to heed demands from the U.N. Security Council to freeze key nuclear programs.

Expectations are low as Iran meets today with the European Union, the United States, Russia, Britain, France and Germany.

Negotiators want Iran to stop uranium enrichment, which can make both fuel for reactors and the fissile core of nuclear arms. Iran announced yesterday that it had delivered its first domestically mined raw uranium to a processing facility.
