Turkish FM: 'No barrier' to Iran nuclear talks

Fresh talks between major powers and Iran about Tehran's nuclear programme have begun in a "positive atmosphere", Iranian officials say.

The talks in Turkey are expected to revive a fuel-swap plan that involves Iran giving up uranium enrichment in exchange for enriched foreign material.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told the BBC's Jonathan Charles that now both Iran and the major powers appear to "have an intention" to find a solution in the matter.

However US officials have warned that a major breakthrough is unlikely.
