Iran's Foreign Ministry on Sunday said Ali Larijani, who resigned as the country's top nuclear negotiator, would attend talks on Tuesday in Rome alongside Iran's new top negotiator and the EU's foreign policy chief.
Larijani would join newly-appointed Iranian negotiator, Saeed Jalili, for the talks with the EU's Javier Solana in an attempt to diffuse tensions between the West and Teheran over its controversial nuclear program.
"Based on the supreme leader's and president's suggestion, Mr. Larijani, alongside Mr. Jalili, will attend the negotiation with Solana on Tuesday," Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini told reporters during his weekly news conference.
He emphasized that despite Larijani's resignation, Iran's "nuclear policy, strategy and aims are unchangeable."
