Iranian senior negotiator Abbas Araghchi said President Hassan Rouhani does not intend to attend nuclear negotiations personally.
Araghchi told IRNA he had said the president would direct the talks which does not mean being present at the negotiating table.
Iran and six world powers (US, Britain, France, China, Russia, and Germany) will resume their negotiations shortly.
The two sides will resume talks to draw up a final agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program within days, Catherine Ray, spokesperson for EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, says.
At a press briefing in Brussels on Friday, she added that the negotiating sides were maintaining contact by phone and e-mail.
Ray said she would inform the media on the exact day of the talks as soon as it has been agreed upon.
