Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the Iranian parliaments national security and foreign relations committee, said that Turkey could not hold the talks between Tehran and the 5+1 group (five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) over Irans nuclear program because of Ankaras stance on Syria. Boroujerdi said that Turkey was excluded from the nuclear talks, which could be held in either in Iraq or in China. The meeting is due April 13-14. In response to the remarks from Boroujerdi, PM Recep Erdogan said that Iran was not being honest. Iran previously proposed that Istanbul would be the venue for the nuclear talks.
