TEHRAN (AFP) Nov 05, 2004
A senior Iranian official said on Friday that progress had been made during talks in Paris aimed at averting a crisis over the Islamic republic's controversial nuclear programme.
"We have made progress and if the discussions continue like this, there is a possibility that we will reach a solution that satisfies both parties," senior negotiator Hossen Mousavian told state television.
He said that agreement had been reached on certain points, without specifying which.
