Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 18/ Trend F.Milad/
Chairman of the Iran's parliament (Majlis) National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, has said that the upcoming talks between Iran and the 5+1 group should be based on Iran's proposed package.
Regional problems, terrorism, and energy trade are included in the Tehran's package, he told Mehr news agency.
Iran sent a reply on Wednesday to European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton's letter dated October 2011.
Ashton represents the 5+1 group (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany) in nuclear negotiations with Iran.
The letter contains suggestions about the date, venue, and agenda of new round of talks about Iran's nuclear program between Tehran and the 5+1 group, Ali Baqeri, the deputy secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), told the Russian news agency RIA Novosti.
It is more than likely that the new round of talks will be held in Istanbul in the near future.
The Iranian official also emphasized that the Islamic Republic will accept no preconditions for the resumption of talks with the six major powers.
