Six world powers and Iran began talks on Tuesday in pursuit of a final settlement on Tehran's disputed nuclear programme in the coming months despite caveats from both sides that a breakthrough deal may prove impossible.It is the first round of high-level negotiations since a Nov. 24 interim deal that, halting a decade-long slide towards outright conflict, has seen Tehran curb some nuclear activities for six months in return for limited relief from sanctions to allow time for a long-term agreement to be hammered out.Western officials said the talks were aimed at agreeing on how the negotiations would proceed in coming months and what subjects would have to be addressed.During a decade of fitful dialogue with world powers, Iran has rejected allegations by Western countries that it is seeking a nuclear weapons capability.The goal of the talks for the United States and its European allies is to extend the time that Iran would need to produce enough fissile material for a viable nuclear weapon.
