Consultations within the 5+1 format on Iran's nuclear program will continue unless the problem exhausts, Iranian Foreign Minister Monuchehr Mottaki said in Tbilisi at a joint press conference with Foreign Minister of Georgia Grigol Vashadze.
5+1 format consists of five permanent U.N. Security Council members plus Germany.
According to Vashadze, the next round of negotiations on Iran's nuclear program will be held on Nov. 10.
"It is still unknown where they will take place, there are two options - Istanbul and Geneva," said Mottaki.
In his turn, Vashadze noted that according to Georgia's assessment, Iran has the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, as Iran is a member of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, although Iran also has certain obligations that derive from membership to this group," Vashadze said.
Georgian Foreign Minister welcomed the launch of negotiations within 5 +1.
