EU’s Solana working to set up talks with Iranian nuclear envoy

-

AFP : European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana is trying to set up a meeting with Iran’s top nuclear negotiator as a deadline approaches for Tehran to suspend uranium enrichment, an EU diplomat said Tuesday. BRUSSELS, Aug 29, 2006 (AFP) – European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana is trying to set up a meeting with Iran’s top nuclear negotiator as a deadline approaches for Tehran to suspend uranium enrichment, an EU diplomat said Tuesday.

“Contacts are continuing to study the possibility of a meeting” with Iran’s Ali Larijani, hopefully “before the end of the month”, the diplomat said on condition of anonymity.

The diplomat said that Solana hoped to set up the meeting somewhere in Europe, and that it would also involve “diplomats” from the so-called EU-3 powers of Britain, France and Germany.

The UN Security Council has given Iran an August 31 deadline to suspend all uranium enrichment and reprocessing activities, and an impasse looms as Iran insists that it has no intention of abandoning such work.
