Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Wednesday that Turkey considered that technical talks should start between Iran and Vienna Group as soon as possible.
Davutoglu and German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle held a joint press conference following their meeting over breakfast at Istanbul's Ciragan Palace.
Davutoglu said Westerwelle and he also discussed regional issues in their meeting.
He recalled, "Turkey, Iran and Brazil held talks in Istanbul within the scope of Iran's nuclear program. The following day Iran responded to Vienna Group and EU decided on new sanctions the same day."
"We attach importance to continuation of this diplomacy atmosphere. Technical negotiations should start between Iran and Vienna Group as soon as possible," Davutoglu said.
Replying to questions, Davutoglu said Iran gave important messages during latest meetings.
Davutoglu said Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki had said Iran was ready for talks with Vienna Group within the scope of its Tehran Agreement.
Answering a question on Israel's raid on aid flotilla, Davutoglu said Turkey expected solidarity from Germany on this matter.
