"If there is strong political will and mutual confidence being established, this issue could be resolved in a few days," Davutoglu said at the Munich Security Conference. "The technical disputes are not so big. The problem is mutual confidence and strong political will."
Davutoglu also warned that a military action against Iran will create a "disaster" in the already volatile Middle East region.
"A military option will create a disaster in our region. So before that disaster, everybody must be serious in negotiations. We hope soon both sides will meet again but this time there will be a complete result," Davutoglu stated.
The senior Turkish diplomat also said further sanctions could hinder negotiations.
Qatari Foreign Minister Khalid Mohamed al-Attiyah also said an attack "is not a solution, and tightening the embargo on Iran will make the scenario worse.
"I believe that with our allies and friends in the West we should open a serious dialogue with the Iranians to get out of this dilemma. This is what we feel in our region."
The main bone of contention between Tehran and the West is over Iran's nuclear enrichment program. Tehran says it is refining uranium only for electricity generation and medical applications.
As a signatory to the NPT, Iran has legal right to uranium enrichment for civilian purpose.
