COPENHAGEN – The Danish foreign ministry summoned Iran’s charge d’affaires last week to express its concern over Tehran’s impending resumption of sensitive nuclear work, the ministry said in a statement on Monday.

Charge d’affaires Hossein Taleshi Salehani was summoned on July 28 for talks with senior ministry official Anne Dorte Reggelsen.

“Denmark supports the efforts to find a diplomatic solution to the issue of the Iranian nuclear programme,” the statement said, and urged Tehran to “maintain the suspension of (uranium) enrichment activities and to pursue negotiations on the basis of the coming European Union proposal.”

“Iran is aware that this proposal is expected by next week,” the ministry said.

The Danish statement was published as Iran announced on Monday that it plans to deliver a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency informing the UN watchdog about its resumption of nuclear work, a negotiator told AFP in Tehran.

“We’re going to hand over the letter in half an hour,” Ali Agha Mohammadi told AFP.

In separate comments to state television, he added: “In this letter, we say to the IAEA that we are resuming our (uranium ore conversion) activities at Isfahan starting from today under its supervision.”

The seals placed on the facility by the IAEA “will be removed today in the presence of the agency inspectors currently in Iran.”

Conversion, the process by which uranium ore is changed into a gas as a precursor to enrichment, was suspended by Iran last November for the duration of talks with the European Union on providing guarantees that its nuclear programme is exclusively civil.
