"These bilateral consultations will take place in the context of the P5+1 nuclear negotiations with Iran, led by EU Special Advisor Cathy Ashton," the State Department said in a statement.
Iran is in talks with the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany to end a decade-old standoff over its nuclear program, which the West fears could be used to develop a nuclear bomb.
Iran denies having any nuclear weapons ambitions and is seeking an end to international sanctions.
