Iran plans to negotiate with EU on nuclear program

Mehr news agency reported today, citing Iran’s ambassador to Germany, Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili plans to submit a letter to European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton to restart talks on the country’s nuclear program.


Alireza Sheikh Attar told the state-run news agency, a new round of talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany may follow.


Iran is facing new Western efforts to halt its suspected nuclear weapons program, including US sanctions that are awaiting President Barack Obama’s signature and a possible European Union ban on imports of oil from Iran, the world’s third-largest oil exporter. However, Iran denies seeking to develop atomic weapons, according to Bloomberg.
