BRUSSELS (AP) — Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Friday that Tehran was ready to resume talks about its nuclear program with the international community within a matter of weeks.
"From our point of view October or November is a good time for the re-establishment of negotiations," Mottaki said.
He spoke to reporters as he arrived for a meeting of the so-called Friends of Democratic Pakistan group, which was formed two years ago to support the country's moves toward democracy. Participants are discussing increased aid to Islamabad in the aftermath of the devastation caused by this summer's floods.
On Thursday, Catherine Ashton, the EU security and foreign affairs chief suggested the talks on Iran's nuclear program be held in Vienna "over three days in mid-November," with the participation of the United States, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany.
"Ashton hopes Mr. (Saeed) Jalili will respond positively and looks forward to constructively engaging with Iran next month," her spokesman Darren Ennis said, referring to Iran's top nuclear negotiator.
Ashton issued the statement soon after meeting U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Brussels.
