What’s been decided, Reuters reports, citing Iranian press, is that Tehran and the world heads will meet again, this time in Almaty and Istanbul. The difference is the Istanbul talks will be “expert level,” Reuters reports.
That means technical experts will be present, according to the media reports.
Those talks are reportedly set for the mid-March time frame.
Even though it’s not clear what was accomplished with these latest two-day discussions, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov nonetheless called them “useful,” Reuters said.
