Share

Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani speaks to the media after his talks with Russian Security Council chief Igor Ivanov in Moscow, Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2006. Larijani said Wednesday that Tehran welcomes Moscow’s offer to have Iran’s uranium enriched in Russia as a positive development but holds out the threat to renew enrichment activities if it is referred to the United Nations Security Council.

ASSociated Press: Iran Welcomes Russian Nuclear Offer

Iran’s top nuclear negotiator said Wednesday that Tehran views Moscow’s offer to have Iran’s uranium enriched in Russia as a positive development but no agreement has been reached between the countries.

Chief negotiator Ali Larijani also reiterated Iran’s threat to renew enrichment activities if it is referred to the
U.N. Security Council.

Moscow has proposed having Iran’s uranium enriched in Russia, then returned to Iran for use in the country’s reactors — a compromise that could provide more oversight and ease tensions with the United States and
European Union over Iran’s nuclear program.

“Our view of this offer is positive, and we tried to bring the positions of the sides closer,” Larijani said a day after talks with Russian Security Council chief Igor Ivanov, which included discussion of the plan. “This plan can be perfected in the future, during further talks that will be held in February.”

More stalling………good grief……..

A British Foreign Office official, speaking on condition of anonymity in keeping with government policy, said foreign ministers from the five permanent U.N. Security Council members — Britain, France, Russia, China and the United States — plus Germany would meet in London next week to discuss the next steps in the crisis over Iran’s nuclear program. The meeting will take place on the sidelines of a donors’ conference on
Afghanistan.

State Department spokesman Sean McCormack also said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was expected to use the Afghan meeting to hold discussions with key nations on Iran’s nuclear program.

Discussions on sanctions or WAR PLANS?

Stay tuned……..
