Azerbaijan, Baku March 28 / Trend A.Taghiyeva, T.Jafarov /
Iran supports holding negotiation between Iran and Six powers in Turkey, first vice-president of Iran, Mohammad Reza Rahimi, said after a meeting with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is on an official visit to Iran, IRNA reported on Wednesday.
Rahimi also noted the need to expand bilateral relations between Turkey and Iran.
"There is great potential for the development of economic relations between the countries. There are no barriers for the development of cooperation between Iran and Turkey," he said.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan began today his visit to Iran. Erdogan is expected to meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Chairman of Parliament Ali Larijani.
In January 2011 the negotiations between Iran and the Six powers were already held in Istanbul.
Later, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said that Tehran is ready to resume talks with the Six powers on the Iranian nuclear issue, but the venue must be agreed.
The U.S. and other Western countries suspect Iran of developing nuclear weapons under the guise of peaceful nuclear energy program. Tehran denies the charges, saying its nuclear program is aimed at meeting the country's electricity needs.
