Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has “granted permission” for direct nuclear talks between Iran and the US, the Amwaj.media news site reports.

The report, citing senior Iranian sources, says that negotiator  Ali Bagheri Kani is ready to meet with Biden administration officials in Oman.

The report says Tehran now wants to return to the point where talks broke off last year.

The report comes days after the US said it refused a request by Iran’s foreign minister to visit Washington last week, pointing to concerns about Tehran’s record including past detentions of US citizens.

The plans by Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian were also first reported by Amwaj.media.
