WASHINGTON, Nov. 30 — The U.S. State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said on Monday that the United States is still waiting for a confirmation from Iran on the potential talks with major powers designed to solve the current nuclear standoff.

"We have offered a date. We've offered locations to (Iran). And we are awaiting a confirmation by (Iran) that not only if the dates are right, but the location is acceptable," Crowley said in a regular briefing.

Media reports coming out of Tehran said Monday that Russia has been told that nuclear talks on Dec. 5 in Geneva works for the Iranians. Major players in the Iran's nuclear stalemate, namely France, Russia, the U.S., UK, China and Germany, are expected to participate in the negotiations.

The West has long accused Iran of secretly developing nuclear weapons under a civilian disguise, although Tehran has always denied such charges. (PNA/Xinhua)
