According to a reliable source who talk with Avatoday on condition of anonymity, Iran told the Oman government that “Mohammad Javad Zarif (Iranian Foreign Minister) and its diplomatic team are ready to negotiate with the U.S officials, and that the aim is to avoid further tension in the region.”
The source added that Iran declared only one request and condition for the meeting while showing their willingness. “Talks must not break out to the media, while Tehran is solving its internal obstacles to the negotiation.”
It has not been clarified whether Ali Khamenei, Supreme leader of Islamic Republic of Iran is aware of the message.
The US response to Tehran’s request is also not clear yet, but the aim of this unofficial or indirect message to U.S could give Iran more time to overcome its internal crisis.
