By Fatih Karimov - Trend: Iran seeks innovation in the nuclear talks, Abbas Araqchi, a top Iranian nuclear negotiator stated.
"We are planning to create innovation in the method of negotiation in order to speed up the process of negotiation," Iran's Fars news agency quoted Araqchi as saying on Feb. 21.
"After passing a year, we are in a situation that we should discuss details, as we intend to reach a single-stage agreement both in generalities and details," he said.
Tehran's and Washington's foreign ministers will meet on Feb. 21 and Feb. 22.
The deputy secretary general for the European Union's external action service, Helga Schmid will also join the bilateral talks between Mohammad Javad Zarif and John Kerry.
The latest round of nuclear talks between Iran and the US was held on Feb. 6 on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference.
The talks between Iran and the P5+1 (the US, UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) were extended until June 30, 2015 to reach a comprehensive nuclear agreement. However, the sides attempt to reach a political accord in March.
After the parties failed to meet the Nov. 24, 2014 deadline they also extended the Geneva nuclear deal, which was signed in November 2013 for providing Iran with some sanctions relief in exchange for Tehran agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities.
