London, Jan. 07 – The 25 member states of the European Union warned Iran on Saturday to scrap its planned resumption of suspended nuclear research and development at its uranium enrichment facility in Natanz.

“The EU views with serious concern the Government of Iran’s intention to resume suspended nuclear activities”, a statement released by the bloc’s Austrian presidency announced. “It recalls that this and other parts of Iran’s nuclear program were frozen, under IAEA supervision, following revelations of Iran’s clandestine nuclear activities over a period of more than a decade”.

The EU said that resumption of activities in Natanz would “violate both the letter and the spirit of the 8 previous resolutions” by the International Atomic Energy Agency. “These call on Iran, inter alia, to suspend all enrichment related activities”.

It called the Iranian move “unilateral” and “at a moment when international confidence in the peaceful nature of its programme is far from restored”.

“Resumption of activities and such disregard for the repeated wishes of the IAEA Board of Governor[s”> can only seriously jeopardise the possibility of a return to negotiations”, the EU nations said.

The United States, Britain and France are reportedly working closely with Russia and China to work out a common declaration on the Iranian nuclear program and press Iran to end its intransigence on the issue.
