Iran invites European Foreign Ministers for talks on nuclear program
Iran has invited the British, French and German foreign ministers to Tehran to follow up on their initiative to settle a dispute over Tehran's nuclear program, the Iranian foreign ministry announced Sunday.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said the Islamic Republic had been negotiating with the European Union's big three after they sent a letter offering technical assistance to Iran in return for its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency.
"Since the foreign ministers of Germany, Britain and France have sent us a letter showing their inclination to cooperate with us we have decided on a constructive dialogue," Asefi said, adding that talks have been going on "for several days".
"It is possible that in the coming days that this will reach a higher level - so we have invited to Iran the three foreign ministers to give their points of view," the spokesman said. (Albawaba.com)
