Iran said on Tuesday bilateral nuclear talks with the United States were proceeding in a good atmosphere despite lingering gaps over key issues such as Teheran's uranium enrichment capacity and how fast economic sanctions should be lifted.

US and Iranian diplomats began a two-day meeting in Geneva on Monday to pave the way for resuming broader negotiations involving Iran and six world powers on Wednesday.

They are aimed at resolving a 12-year standoff over Iran's disputed nuclear aspirations that has wrought heavy economic sanctions on Teheran and fears of a new Middle East war unless the dispute can be settled diplomatically soon.
