Talks held over Iran's nuclear programme

Major world powers have begun two days of talks with Iran over its controversial nuclear programme.

The UN has imposed four rounds of sanctions on Iran in the last four years for failing to disclose the full extent of its nuclear activities.

Iran insists that its nuclear ambitions are entirely peaceful.

The BBC's James Reynolds reports from Istanbul.
