Next Round of Iran-US talks

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

Next round of Iran-US talks on Iraq will be held in a near future, said Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki.

"The Swiss embassy in Iran has submitted a message from the US government to Iran for holding a new round of talks on Iraq," said the minister.

Noting that Iran "has responded positively to the US request," Mottaki stressed that the talks would be held "within the framework of assisting the Iraqi people and the security situation" in the war-torn country.

"The exact date of the next round of the talks will be announced later but it will be conducted anyway," said the minister.
