Beirut : European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana will hold talks with Iran’s new nuclear negotiator Saeid Jalili next week in Rome, Italian Foreign Minister Massimo D’Alema confirmed.
Iran’s nuclear head Ali Larijani resigned Saturday and was replaced by Deputy Foreign Minister Jalili.
“My information is that despite the resignation of Ali Larijani, he will come to Rome with his successor to attend the meeting,” D’Alema said during a press conference in Beirut along with his French and Spanish counterparts.
The meeting is expected to take place in Rome Tuesday.
Solana had held three rounds of talks with Larijani, aiming to help solve dispute over Iran’s nuclear programme. Solana last met with Larijani in June in Lisbon.
