WASHINGTON (AP) - The next round of international nuclear negotiations with Iran is expected to be held in New York next month, according to officials involved in the planning.

The U.S. and its negotiating partners - Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia - will be seeking a long-term agreement to halt Iran’s disputed nuclear program. The Islamic republic will be pressing for an end to international sanctions that have crippled the economy.

The opening rounds were held in Geneva. The parties agreed to a six-month deal that freezes key aspects of Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for easing some of the economic sanctions. That went into effect on Jan. 20.

The officials insisted on anonymity because they weren’t authorized to identify themselves as confirming the location of the talks before a public announcement.
