Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 5 /Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
The next round of nuclear talks between Iran and P5+1 group will be held in Kazakstan later this month, on February 26, IRIB NEWS reported.
Assistant to Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili, Ali Bagheri and EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton's assistant Helga Schmid held phone talks earlier today, and the date for the next nuclear talks was agreed upon.
On July 24, 2012, Ali Bagheri held talks with Helga Schmid in Istanbul and discussed Tehran's nuclear program.
At the end of two days of talks between Iran and the P5+1 - China, Russia, Britain, France, the US and Germany - on June 19, 2012, the sides agreed to hold a follow-on technical level meeting in the Turkish city of Istanbul on July 3.
Tehran and the P5+1 had as well held three rounds of talks earlier; one in Geneva in December 2010 and two in Istanbul in January 2011 and in April 2012.
The West, led by the United States, has imposed sanctions against Iran, accusing Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear energy program.
Iran has repeatedly dismissed the Western allegations, arguing that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has every right to pursue nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
