Iran's foreign ministry to lead nuclear talks

Iranian Foreign Ministry has been named responsible for carrying out nuclear negotiations with P5+1 and the IAEA, Fars news agency reported.

During ex-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad`s administration, the top nuclear negotiator for Iran was the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Sa'eid Jalili.

The U.S. and its Western allies suspect Iran of developing a nuclear weapon - something that Iran denies.

The Islamic Republic has on numerous occasions stated that it does not seek to develop nuclear weapons, using nuclear energy for medical researches instead.
