BERLIN - Foreign ministers of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (P5) and Germany will meet in Berlin on Thursday in a bid to agree a common approach for dealing with Iran's nuclear programme, diplomats said.

The foreign ministers of the US, Russia, China, Britain and France have been invited by German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier for the one-day talks.

Members of the P5 are currently in disagreement over how to deal with Iran's nuclear programme which the US and many European countries believe is aimed at building nuclear weapons.

Russia and China have expressed deep reservations over slapping any UN sanctions on Tehran.

Iran, which insists its nuclear research is for peaceful purposes, was referred to the UN Security Council earlier this year by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
