The United States said on Tuesday that it is "glad" about Iran's announcement to restart negotiations with the EU-3 over its uranium enrichment program.
"We are glad they are going back to the EU-3 talks and we hope that they produce productive results," White House spokesman Tony Snow said at a briefing.
"We have always been clear on the end state, which is that, Iran to suspend all enrichment and reprocessing activities, and we wish them success," Snow said.
Earlier Tuesday, Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said in Malaysia that Iran is ready to restart its negotiations with the EU-3 over its nuclear enrichment program.
"I would like to announce our readiness to restart immediately the negotiations with the EU-3 to resolve the issue," Mottaki said.
The talks between the EU-3 and Iran have been in a standstill since last year.
The United States has said it supports talks between the EU-3 and Iran, although it says it will not be involved in such talks.
