Powers tell Iran "door remains open" for atom talks

VIENNA (Reuters) - World powers urged Iran on Wednesday to cooperate with the U.N. atomic agency to help resolve concerns about possible military aspects to the Islamic state's disputed nuclear program.

In a joint statement issued at a board meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the six powers made clear they remained ready for talks with Iran to find a diplomatic solution to the long-running row over its nuclear work.

"The door remains open," the statement said.
