Turkish PM to Discuss Tehran's N. Issue with Iranian Officials
TEHRAN (FNA)- Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is due to discuss Iran's nuclear issue and developments in Tehran-Ankara bilateral relations during his current visit to Tehran, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on Wednesday.
Salehi referred to Erdogan's visit to Iran and the existing friendly relations between Tehran and Ankara, and said the countries' officials are to discuss not only nuclear issues but also bilateral cooperation.
During the Turkish premier's stay, further expansion of bilateral economic relations will be reviewed by the Iranian officials and members of the Turkish visiting delegation, he told the Islamic republic news agency.
Salehi also said that the venue for fresh talks between Iran and the G5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) will be set in the next few days.
The talks between Iran and the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany are expected to take place on April 13, Salehi added.
Iran and the G5+1 held two rounds of multifaceted talks in Geneva in December 2010 and in the Turkish city of Istanbul in January 2011.
While Tehran says it is ready to continue the talks based on common grounds, it has stressed that it will not give up any of its rights.
