Iran says UN nuclear resolution would mean end of talks
TEHRAN, Nov 12 (AFP) Nov 12, 2006
Iran's top nuclear negotiator said on Sunday that any UN resolution passed against Tehran over its nuclear programme would mean the end of negotiations to find a solution to the standoff, the Mehr news agency reported.
"The passing of a resolution, even with the Russian amendments, would mean a change of the path and represent the end of the path of negotiations," Ali Larijani said, referring to Russian efforts to change the draft text.
"The resolution would mean our partners in talks say 'no' to us," he told reporters after arriving back in Iran from talks in Moscow, the semi-official agency said.All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
