Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on June 16 this his country is scheduled to hold a trilateral meeting with the United States and European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton later in the day in Austrian capital, Vienna.

Zarif is currently in Vienna on Monday morning for new a round of nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, Iran's Mehr News Agency reported on June 16.
