Turkey does not deserve to host the Iran-Group 5+1 talks, Vice Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, Mansour Haghighat-Pour announced today, according to Fars News Agency.
The Iranian MP said that the reason for his position is that Turkey does not hold the same opinion with Iran on Syria.
Mansour Haghighat-Pour also spoke against holding the Iran-Group 5+1 talks in Egypt.
The Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) is soon due to hold a regular meeting with Iran. It was said initially that the talks will be held in Turkey but later it was announced that they could take place in Egypt.
The latest talks between Iran and Group 5+1 took place in April 2012 in Istanbul. The second round of talks took place in Baghdad in May, the third in Moscow in June.
