Iran suggests to big powers to find common points in upcoming talks
A senior official at Iran's Supreme National Security Council suggested to the Western powers Monday to try to find common points with Iran in their next round of talks with the country, IRNA reported.
'In order to find a way out of the deadlock made by certain Western states, they need to find common points in the next round of talks with Iran,' Deputy Secretary of the SNSC Ali Baqeri said.
He made the remarks in a meeting here with visiting Acting Deputy Foreign Minister Peter Maurer who is in Tehran to discuss issues of mutual interest with Iranian officials.
Baqeri stressed that during the latest talks held in Geneva on December 6 and 7 between Iran and members of the 5+1 Group, the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain, along with Germany, the two sides agreed to continue their talks in Istanbul, Turkey.
Latest media reports said that the next round of talks between Iran and the G5+1 member states is to resume on January 21.
Baqeri suggested to 'certain powers' to adopt a 'logical way' in their upcoming talks with Iran which would lead to further cooperation.
Meanwhile, the Swiss official whose country had hosted the three rounds of G5+1's talks with Iran, expressed hope that the next round of talks in Istanbul would pave the way for further interaction and cooperation between the two sides.
