Iran FM ‘Optimistic’ on Nuclear Talks

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said today he was optimistic about upcoming nuclear talks in Baghdad with world powers.

“The results of the meeting in Istanbul (on 14 April) were satisfactory and I am optimistic about the next meeting in Baghdad,” Salehi told reporters during a visit to Tunisia. Baghdad talks are scheduled for 23 May.

Salehi also downplayed Israelis threats to hit Iran's nuclear sites.

“Israel's threats to attack Iran are a bluff,” Salehi said. “But we take them seriously and are ready to defend ourselves.”
