ISTANBUL — Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Thursday that he had discussed the next round of nuclear talks between Teheran and six world powers with Iran's new acting foreign minister.
The talks will held in Istanbul next month.
Davutoglu said he met Iran's Ali Akbar Salehi at a regional economic summit late Wednesday. Salehi, who is accompanying Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is making his first international appearance since replacing Iran's sacked foreign minister last week.
Davutoglu said Thursday that Turkey was working toward "reducing the environment of tension" over Iran's nuclear program.
