Iran, US, France, Germany to Attend Roundtable Nuclear Discussion in Munich
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Foreign ministers from Iran, the US, Germany and France are scheduled to attend a roundtable discussion on Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program at the 51st Munich Security Conference, chairman of the conference said on Monday.
Speaking at a press conference in Berlin, Wolfgang Ischinger said the roundtable discussion will be held on Sunday, February 8.
One of the main themes of the forthcoming conference in Munich will be the course of nuclear talks between Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany), he added.
Ischinger, a former German deputy foreign minister, added that European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini is likely to join the roundtable discussion as well.
Asked about the possibility of any “official” round of talks on Iran’s nuclear program on the sidelines of the Munich conference, the chairman said such a meeting hinges upon the decision of Germany’s Foreign Ministry and of the EU as well as the presence of all foreign ministers of the parties to the talks.
The 51st Munich Security Conference will be held from February 6 to 8.
Over the past five decades, the Munich Security Conference has become a key annual gathering for the international community. Since its foundation in 1963 as "Internationale Wehrkunde-Begegnung," the MSC has been an independent forum dedicated to promoting peaceful conflict resolution and international cooperation and dialogue in dealing with world challenges.
