Turkey's PM replies to Obama's letter over Iran

The Turkish prime minister sent a letter to the U.S. president on Friday, briefing him on an agreement signed in Tehran, Iran on Monday regarding Iran's nuclear program.

Turkey's Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan's letter was a response to the letter U.S. President Barack Obama sent on April 20.

In his letter, Erdogan briefed Obama on details of the agreement reached in Tehran over Iran's nuclear program on Monday.

Erdogan said the mentioned declaration had not closed Iran's nuclear program file, but opened a significant door for settlement of the issue through diplomatic means.

Premier Erdogan said Turkey would continue its efforts for solution of the issue.

With the agreement signed by Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Iranian Foreign Minister Manuchehr Motaki and Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim on Monday, Iran committed to give the 1200kg of 3.5% enriched uranium to Turkey in exchange for 20% enriched uranium it will receive from Western countries to be used as fuel in the nuclear research reactor in Tehran.

Tehran will receive the enriched uranium from the Vienna Group, comprising of the U.S., France, Russia and International Atomic Energy Agency, in Turkey.
