For the first time in more than a year, diplomats from Iran will meet with representatives from the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council — U.S., Britain, France, Russia and China — plus Germany.
The meeting, to be held in Istanbul this weekend, will focus on Iran's controversial nuclear program.
