SARAJEVO, Bosnia — The United States and the European Union (EU) say they'll press on with sanctions against Iran even as they hope the promise of new negotiations could lead to a diplomatic solution ending the nuclear standoff.

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton says European officials met last weekend with aides to Iran's top nuclear negotiators, Saeed Jalili. She said she plans to meet directly with Jalili soon.

That is seen as a key step in the resumption of talks between Iran and world powers over Tehran's disputed nuclear program. The West fears Iran may be trying to develop nuclear weapons, a charge Tehran denies.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the diplomatic window of opportunity for Iran wouldn't stay open forever.

Speaking Tuesday alongside Ashton in Bosnia, she said Iran must do more to end its international isolation.
