Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) — Iran would favor opening the next nuclear talks with world powers to all nations, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said.

“If more countries join the talks, better results will be achieved as international issues, which concern different nations, will be discussed,” Mehmanparast was quoted as telling the state-run Mehr news agency yesterday.

Mehmanparast did not elaborate on which nations, aside from the five permanent United Nations Security Council members plus Germany, that Iran would like to see at the meeting.

Iran, under pressure from international economic sanctions, agreed to restart talks over its disputed uranium enrichment activities, after Nov. 10, the European Union said last week.

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, the envoy of the U.S., UK,, France, Russia, China plus Germany on the nuclear program, is in talks with Iran’s nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili over the timing and location of the nuclear talks, Ali- Akbar Javanfekr, the presidential adviser for press affairs said in an Oct. 30 interview.

Details regarding the meeting “will be announced in coming days,” said Javanfekr, who spoke on the sidelines of a media exhibition in Tehran.

The U.S. and its allies accuse Iran’s nuclear program of being a cover for the development of nuclear weapons, a charge the Persian Gulf country rejects, saying it needs the technology to secure energy for its growing population.

Iran “has never turned away from negotiations,” Javanfekr said. “We have a rational stance and have things that need to be said.”
