Assistant to Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili, Ali Bagheri said that he might soon be meeting with EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton's assistant Helga Schmid, ISNA reported.
Bagheri noted that Iran's office received a call from Schmid's office, regarding the nuclear meeting on Monday, yet the Iranian side dismissed the possibility, saying the time schedule must be adjusted first.
"The meeting will take place soon, however the exact time needs to be configured first," Bagheri noted.
Bagheri also said that Iran never stepped back from the nuclear negotiations with the P5+1 group, and said that Iran is expecting the group's answer on Iran's proposals which were presented in the Moscow talks in June.
The U.S. and Israel suspect Iran of making a nuclear bomb, a statement that Iran denies, claiming its nuclear program is completely peaceful, oriented for medical and research purposes.
Earlier today, another senior Iranian foreign policy official also voiced Tehran's readiness to review the diplomatic solutions presented by any world country to resolve its nuclear standoff with the West.
"Tehran welcomes any effort by other countries to bring about a peaceful and diplomatic solution to the Western standoff over Iran's nuclear energy program," Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Asia, Oceania and Commonwealth (Central Asia) Affairs Seyed Abbas Araqchi said.
Baqeri had also earlier this month said that Tehran was waiting for the world powers' response to its proposal which was presented in the Moscow talks in June, adding that the response would pave the way for future talks between the two sides.
