Iran insists Solana-Jalili meeting still Nov 30
TEHRAN, Nov 22 (AFP) Nov 22, 2007
Iran's top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili on Thursday insisted he would meet EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana November 30 in London, although Brussels said there was no still date for the encounter.
"I will meet Mr Solana next Friday in London," Jalili told reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Tehran, specifying that he was referring to November 30.
However Solana's spokeswoman said Wednesday there was "no date" for a meeting between Solana and Jalili, which would be the latest attempt by the two sides to break the deadlock in the nuclear crisis.
Solana must report to the UN Security Council by the end of November on Tehran's willingness to comply with the council's demand to freeze uranium enrichment, a potential bomb-making process.All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
