European Union diplomats say Iran wants to soon resume negotiations with the EU aimed at settling the standoff over Iran's nuclear program.
News agencies quote EU diplomats as saying Iran now rejects a planned two-month delay in talks. Instead, they say, Tehran wants working group meetings to resume shortly and for there to be a major meeting of senior officials in as little as a month. The EU diplomats say Tehran also wants Iran's ability to enrich uranium to be part of any talks or agreement with Britain, France and Germany, which have been leading the negotiations for the European side.
Iran agreed in talks with the EU last week to continue a temporary suspension of uranium enrichment activities in exchange for pledges by Britain, France and Germany to provide detailed proposals by the end of July or early August on political and economic benefits for Iran.
Iran says its nuclear program is peaceful and has refused to give up its right to enrich uranium, which can produce fuel for atomic power plants or weapons.
