Developments in Iran 'not positive' for nuclear talks: Germany

Germany warned Monday that the latest developments surrounding Iran's Natanz uranium plant did not bode well for nuclear talks aimed at reviving a hobbled agreement on curbing Tehran's atomic ambition.

"What we are hearing currently out of Tehran is not a positive contribution, particularly the development in Natanz," said German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas ahead of talks in Vienna on Tuesday.

A day after Tehran said it started up advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges in Natanz in breach of the 2015 nuclear deal, it said the site was hit by a power outage that it labelled "terrorism" and blamed on Israel.
