Iran confirms it held indirect talks with US in Oman: ‘Negotiations were not the first, will not be the last’

Iran confirms it held indirect talks with the United States in Oman despite the two countries having no diplomatic relations.

Washington and Tehran have long been sharply at odds with tensions centered on Iran’s contested nuclear program and heightened by the Gaza war between their respective allies Israel and Hamas.

On Friday, American news website Axios reported that US and Iranian officials held indirect talks in Oman “on how to avoid escalating regional attacks.”

The official IRNA news agency says that “the representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations confirmed indirect negotiations between Iran and the United States in Oman.”

It quoted the representative as saying that “these negotiations were not the first and will not be the last,” without giving the time and place of the talks.
