In his weekly press briefing, Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini gave no details on the exact date and venue of the meeting.

An EU spokeswoman confirmed today that Solana will soon have fresh talks with Larijani on Tehran's disputed nuclear program.

The two men have had a series of talks aimed at resolving the crisis over Iran's nuclear activities. Tehran says its nuclear aim is to produce fuel for electricity, but Western powers suspect Iran wants to build nuclear weapons.
