Iran to decide on nuclear talks after reviewing offer

TEHRAN, April 9 (Reuters) - Iran will decide on the offer of nuclear talks made by the United States and five other world powers after reviewing the details, a senior advisor to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told Reuters on Thursday.

“We will review it and then decide about it.” said Ali Akbar Javanfekr.

Wednesday’s invitation to direct talks marked a major policy change in Washington.

The United States, Russia, China, France, Germany and Britain said in a statement on Wednesday they would ask European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana to invite Tehran to the talks to find “a diplomatic solution to this critical issue”.
