VIENNA (AP) - Negotiators are meeting in Vienna today in an effort to reach an agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

Representatives from the U.S., Iran and the European Union are meeting in a downtown hotel in talks to fine-tune a framework agreement reached earlier this month.

Iran denies any interest in nuclear arms but has agreed to reduce the capacity of nuclear programs that could be used to make such weapons. In exchange, it wants sanctions ended.

Complicated details on timing and monitoring remain to be ironed out by the June 30 deadline. The foreign ministers of Iran, the United States and five other countries at the table are expected to join in the talks at a later stage.
