Ali Asghar Soltanieh, the Iranian ambassador to the IAEA, announced Iran will restart talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency on May 13-14 in Vienna.
Iran’s decision to restart talks with the UN nuclear watchdog “shows the peaceful nature of all of its nuclear activities, while showing that claims against Iran are baseless,” Ambassador Ali Asghar Soltanieh told IRNA in an interview published on Friday.
Gill Tudor, spokeswoman for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), confirmed this news and said the meeting would take place on May 14-15 at the Iranian diplomatic mission in Vienna.
Iranian recently restarted their talks with 5+1 groups in Istanbul. Washington and its allies believe Tehran is working on developing nuclear bombs. The next round of the negotiations between Iran and the six world powers — U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany — set for May 23 in Baghdad. Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on Monday Iran was optimistic that the talks with United States, Russia, China, Germany, France and Britain would make progress.
