Iran announced Sunday that it is ready for nuclear talks to be held in Turkey, yet, it said, time and agenda of the forthcoming meeting with the five UN Security Council permanent members and Germany (G5+1) still need to be negotiated.

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Iran has agreed to hold talks with the six major powers in Turkey.

Talking on the sidelines of a meeting with his Singaporean counterpart George Yeo Yong Boon in Tehran, Mottaki said Iran hopes that agreements on the content and date of the talks be reached.

"The agreements on the venue of the talks (with G5+1) has almost been finalized," he said, adding "we have informed our friends in Turkey that we agreed with the talks in this country ( Turkey)."

"The negotiations between the sides is moving well... and we hope that the agreements on the date and agenda (of the talks) will be reached soon," he was quoted as saying by the semi- official Mehr news agency.
