TEHERAN - Iran's chief nuclear negotiator will visit Paris and Berlin this week for further talks aimed at breaking the deadlock in the ongoing international dispute over the Teheran's nuclear programme, the news service Mehr reported on Monday.

Hassan Rowhani is scheduled to be in Paris on Thursday and in Berlin on Friday, Mehr said.

Iranian negotiators have following an agreement last November been meeting with representatives of the European Union "big three" of Britain, Germany and France in an effort to find a diplomatic solution to the nuclear dispute.

Iran has suspended the enrichment of uranium for the duration of the talks process. The EU however reportedly demands a long-term suspension which Teheran has so far rejected.

Final reports on the talks have to be presented to Iranian leaders by 15 March.

Iranian government spokesperson Abdullah Ramezanzadeh reiterated on Monday that Teheran would wait until the release of the final report in mid-March and then decide whether to continue the talks with the EU or not.

Rowhani on Saturday said that even if no agreement was reached by the March deadline, "then at least the grounds for such an agreement should be prepared".
