Iran Confirms Istanbul As Venue For Nuclear Talks

Source: RFE/RL

Tehran has agreed that a fresh round of nuclear talks with world powers will be held in Istanbul on April 14.

Iran's talks with five members of the UN Security Council -- Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States -- and Germany are aimed are aimed at resolving the standoff over Tehran's disputed nuclear activities.

Iran had initially agreed to the talks being held in Istanbul but Iranian officials later said Ankara's support for the opposition in Syria -- an Iranian ally -- excluded Istanbul as a venue and suggested Baghdad instead.

Nevertheless, on April 9, a statement from Iran's Supreme National Security Council said that a first round of talks will be held in Istanbul on April 14.

The statement said that if these talks proved fruitful, a second round could be held in Baghdad a later date.
