The report Sunday by the official ISNA news agency quotes Iran's senior nuclear negotiator Abbas Araghchi as saying the talks will be held along the sidelines of a meeting about the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in May.

This would be the first time in years that Iran and the West would hold talks on the Islamic Republic's nuclear program in New York.

Iran and world powers continue to negotiate a final deal over its nuclear program. Under an interim deal reached in November, Iran agreed to cap its nuclear program for the easing of some financial sanctions.
