Turkish, Iranian officials meet to set road map on nuke talks

Turkey's foreign minister met his Iranian counterpart and Iran's chief nuclear negotiator on Monday.

Ahmet Davutoglu had talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili in Tehran to set the road map on negotiations regarding Iran's nuclear program.

Davutoglu's meetings took place on the sidelines of Turkish President Abdullah Gul's formal visit to the Iranian capital.

During the meeting, Davutoglu discussed with Iranian executives the meeting that took place in Istanbul in January between Iran and P5+1 (five permanent members of the UN
Security Council including the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany).

Davutoglu also tried to set a new date and place for negotiations during his talks.

Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said the next meeting would probably take place in Istanbul.

Iran and P5+1 countries had a two-day meeting in Istanbul on January 21-22. Catherine Ashton, the high representative of the European Union for foreign affairs and security policy, and Saeed Jalili, the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, headed the meetings.

The first meeting between Iran and P5+1 took place in Geneva, Switzerland in October 2009.
