Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu had a phone conversation with Mohammed El Baradei, head of UN's atomic watchdog, and discussed Iran's nuclear program, Turkish foreign ministry spokesman said on Thursday.

 

Turkish President Abdullah Gul and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan got together with Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last weekend in Istanbul over a meeting of the Organization of Islamic Conference.

Davutoglu informed El Baradei, chairman of the International Atomic Energy Agency, about talks with Ahmadinejad as well as his meeting with his Iranian counterpart Manuchehr Motaki, spokesman Burak Ozugergin said.

Davutoglu exchanged views with El Baradei on the phone, and El Baradei gave technical information to Turkish foreign minister, Ozugergin said, adding that Turkish officials would keep in touch with El Baradei.

Turkey insists on diplomatic option and dialogue for solution to Iran's nuclear issue.
