Europe’s Foreign Policy chief, Javier Solana, is to meet Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator in the hope of finding a breakthrough over its continued nuclear activities.
“I have had two conference calls with Dr Ali Larijani. I expect to talk in the coming days again in order to get clarification and see how we can move the process forward,” Solana said. “I don’t know if, at the end, we’ll have a positive outcome,” he added.
Solana spearheaded EU efforts to convince Iran to accept a package of political and economic incentives to suspend its uranium enrichment programme.
Tehran maintains that it is exercising its right to develop civilian atomic energy.
But many in the West fear that it is really trying to build nuclear weapons.
