Tehran, Feb. 16 (Xinhua) -- After a more than one-year-long deadlock over talks on Iran's suspected nuclear program, Tehran said Wednesday it has replied to European Union (EU) Foreign Policy chief Catherine Ashton's October letter over resumption of nuclear talks.

Saeed Jalili, Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, said in the letter that Iran welcomes restart of talks and that "success of the talks is subject to the constructive response of the G5+1 to the initiatives of the Islamic republic."

The EU confirmed on the same day it received a letter from Iran offering to restart nuclear talks that have been in stalemate for more than one year.

Other world powers like China, Russia and Turkey recently have also been calling for early resumption of nuclear talks between Iran and the six nations, namely Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States and Germany.

Besides, an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) delegation will visit Iran on February 21 and 22 to hold talks over Iran's nuclear issue, after an earlier visit at the end of January that Iranian media termed as "positive and constructive."

Amid escalating tensions between Tehran and the West and Israel over Iran's nuclear program, related parties should snap up the above-mentioned hard-won opportunities and restart the nuclear talks as early as possible, which is to the benefits of all sides.
