Istanbul confirmed to host nuclear talks between Iran and Western countries
Istanbul has been confirmed as the host city for nuclear talks between Iran and world powers.
Iran’s Press TV confirmed that Istanbul would host the talks.
Turkey was still ready to host nuclear talks between Iran and Western countries, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu had told Iran’s chief negotiator in a phone conversation late April 5.
Tensions between neighbors Turkey and Iran rose this week after a senior Iranian figure spoke out against Turkey hosting the nuclear talks following the meeting in Istanbul on Sunday of the “Friends of Syria” group of countries opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Iran’s close Arab ally.
