TEHRAN, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said nuclear talks between Iran and the P5-plus-1 countries won't be successful but he won't object to them.

Khamenei said he's not optimistic anything will come of the talks but that many Iranian officials believe there will be a settlement of the issue.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived Monday in Austria to start negotiations with the P5-plus-1, which consists of permanent U.N. Security Council members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States, plus Germany.
