Ali Larijani told a news conference after meeting Turkish leaders in Ankara that Tehran supports the idea of holding further talks in Turkey. Saeed Jalili, Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, recently said he had called on six powers — the U.S, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany — to resume talks.
"I believe all issues can be easily solved through negotiations," Larijani told a news conference. "But this time, we want the talks to be serious, it should not be fake."
Also on Thursday, diplomats said a senior U.N. nuclear agency team will visit Tehran on Jan. 28 with Iran saying it is ready after years of refusal to discuss allegations that it was involved in secret nuclear weapons work.
