ATHENS — Iran's foreign minister was visiting Athens while the first talks in more than a year over Iran's nuclear program were to open in Geneva.
Manouchehr Mottaki was to meet his Greek counterpart, Dimitris Droutsas, as well as the Greek president, on Monday. The Iranian Foreign Ministry said discussions would include Iran's nuclear program and bilateral relations.
Talks were to open in Geneva between Iran's top nuclear negotiator and six world powers. On Sunday, Tehran announced it had produced its first batch of locally mined uranium ore for enrichment, claiming it is now self-sufficient over the nuclear fuel cycle.
