Turkey's FM says atmosphere 'positive' ahead of Iran talks


Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has said that the psychological milieu seemed very positive ahead of the nuclear talks between p5+1 countries and Iran in Istanbul.

Prior to his departure for Lebanon on Tuesday, Davutoglu said that they would try to get some results in the meeting in Istanbul.

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council --Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States-- plus Germany will meet Iranian officials in Istanbul on January 20 and 21 to discuss Iran's nuclear program.

Davutoglu said that he had a very fruitful meeting with Iran's Acting Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi in Ankara on Monday, adding that Iran had a full confidence in Turkey.

Davutoglu expressed hope that parties would arrive in Istanbul by being ready to take concrete steps, and that the crises such as in Lebanon would not affect the negotiations negatively.
