Iran rejects pre-conditions ahead of nuclear talks

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said Iran would not agree to world powers imposing pre-conditions ahead of the resumption of nuclear talks later this week, Iranian media has reported.

Setting conditions before the meeting means drawing conclusions, which is completely meaningless and none of the parties will accept conditions set before the talks.

Iran and the P5+1 countries - the US, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany - are due to resume talks on ending its nuclear programme.
