"According to the agreement reached, the next round of talks will take place in Tehran in October. A few days ago [the interview was given on August 20], the Iranian side handed a note over to the Embassy of Ukraine in Tehran and proposed a period from October 18 to 21 for the second round of talks. [...] At the moment, we are waiting for a response from the Ukrainian side regarding the proposed period," the diplomat said.
According to him, expert meetings of committees will take place in the first two days, and then the two countries' deputy foreign ministers will discuss the results of the meetings.
Moradi praised the first round of talks.
"In my opinion, their results even exceeded our expectations. Therefore, I am also optimistic about the second round of talks and I am confident that thanks to the goodwill of the parties we will achieve very good results," the Iranian ambassador said.
