Iran wants EU talks to resume quickly, rejects two-month delay - diplomats
VIENNA (AFP) Jun 03, 2005
Iran wants talks with the European Union aimed at guaranteeing its nuclear program is peaceful to resume soon as it rejects a two-month delay in negotiations it had provisionally accepted, EU diplomats said Friday.
"They want working groups to resume and for there to be a major meeting of the principals within one month," a diplomat from one of the three countries negotiating with Iran told AFP.
Iran and EU negotiators Britain, France and Germany had agreed in Geneva on May 25 to resume talks in August, after Iran's presidential elections on June 17 and after the EU had come up with concrete proposals on cooperation by the end of July.All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
