TEHRAN, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) -- Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said it seemed that the talks between Iran and world powers on the nuclear issue were in "right direction," Iranian media reported on Thursday.
Quoting Salehi as saying, Tehran Times daily reported that Salehi expressed optimism about an agreement that could be reached with six world powers on Iran's nuclear program in future.
The two-day talks between Iran and the P5+1 powers -- Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States plus Germany, over Iran's disputed nuclear program concluded on Wednesday in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
"From the latest information I received, I'm happy to say that the outcome of the meeting was positive. It has been put on the right track and it is moving in the right direction and that is important," Salehi was quoted as saying by Press TV.
"I would say things are taking a turning point and I think the Almaty meeting will be a milestone," said the Iranian foreign minister in Vienna on Wednesday.
The process that has started would eventually produce an outcome that will be "in the benefit of both sides," he added.
Both Iran and the P5+1 agreed to meet in expert-level in Istanbul, Turkey on March 17 to 18, followed by another high- ranking meeting in Almaty again on April 5.
