TEHRAN, Iran, (AP) – Iran says it’s willing to enter another round of talks with the U.S. over security in Iraq.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini said Monday that Iran will “continue the talks with necessary conditions.” He did not give a possible time.

Hosseini says the U.S. requested the talks through the Swiss Embassy in Tehran because Washington and Iran have no formal relations.

Iran and the U.S. have held three rounds of ambassador-level talks in Baghdad since last May on Iraqi security.

Iran holds considerable sway in Iraq. Most people in both countries are Shiite Muslims and Iraq’s Shiite political parties have close ties to Iran.
