Iran has agreed to meet with P5+1 in Turkey, said Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Sunday.

"We told our friends in Turkey two or three days ago that we have agreed to meet with five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany in Turkey," Mottaki said in a press conference with Singaporean counterpart George Yeo in Tehran.

"There is a consensus among negotiating countries to receive Iran's views and we welcome it," Mottaki said.

"Consultations are well in progress and we have reached an agreement on place of talks, now contacts on being made for date of the dialogue," Mottaki noted.

Iran and P5+1 last met in October 2008 where they discussed Iran's nuclear issue.

The West accuses Iran of building nuclear weapons, Iran denies the allegation, saying that its enrichment activities only aim at peaceful purposes including power generation and medical needs.
