BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Catherine Ashton will stay on as European Union special adviser on the Iranian nuclear talks despite stepping down as EU foreign policy chief, the EU said on Friday.

“To ensure the continuity of negotiations, which require full-time dedication, Catherine Ashton will facilitate the talks,” an EU statement said.

Iran and six powers failed last month to resolve a 12-year stand-off over Tehran’s nuclear ambitions, and gave themselves seven more months to clinch an historic deal.
