Iran will hold talks with Moscow on a proposal to enrich Iranian uranium in Russia, an official said on Sunday.
The announcement comes only a day after a senior Iranian official had declared the proposal dead.
"The situation has changed. Still, we will attend talks with Russia on February 16," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said at a press conference.
On Saturday, Javad Vaeidi, deputy head of the powerful National Security Council, declared the Russian proposal dead after the UN nuclear watchdog reported Iran to the UN Security Council. "The proposal has to conform itself with the new circumstances," Asefi said.
