Spokesman: World Powers Ready for Talks with Iran
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - The Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) is ready to resume its talks with Iran, a spokesman for the European Union (EU) Foreign Policy chief announced.
"We are in touch with the Iranian side," said Michael Mann, spokesman for Catherine Ashton.
"We stand ready to resume negotiations as soon as possible," he added.
Ashton represents the six world powers (Russia, China, the US, France and Britain plus Germany) in talks with Iran.
The two sides have held several rounds of talks on a range of issues, with the main focus being on Tehran’s nuclear energy program.
The two sides wrapped up their latest round of negotiations in April in the Kazakh city of Almaty. An earlier meeting had been held in Almaty in February.
