BERLIN — A German media company said it wants to meet with Iran's foreign minister in order to secure the release of its two detained journalists.

Axel Springer AG said in a statement Saturday its top executives or editors-in-chief are ready to meet with Ali Akbar Salehi in Teheran or elsewhere to discuss all relevant questions to ensure the journalists' release.

The two journalists were detained in October while covering the case of an Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning.

German news weekly Der Spiegel on Saturday quoted Salehi as saying Axel Springer and the journalists' newspaper Bild am Sonntag could speed up the case "if they would admit that they made a mistake."
