Turkey's FM talks to US official over Iran's nuclear program

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has held separate telephone conversations with his Iranian counterpart Manouchehr Mottaki and U.S. president's National Security Adviser Jim Jones, diplomatic sources said on Sunday.

Davutoglu and Mottaki discussed economic projects between Turkey and Iran as well as Tehran's nuclear program.

Also, Davutoglu and Jones discussed Iran's nuclear program, and a summit meeting between Turkey, Pakistan and Afghanistan scheduled for January.

Turkish Anadolu news agency gave no futher details on the matter.

However, the phone call came after Iran's foreign minister said Turkey could be a venue for Tehran to exchange nuclear material with the West.

Mottaki told state TV last week that Iran does not have a problem with Turkish soil as the location for an exchange of enriched uranium for nuclear fuel.

Iran has earlier said it would only accept the exchange on its own territory.
