European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana today said that he favors sending the case of Iran's nuclear activities to the United Nations nuclear watchdog if talks between the EU and Iran break down. Solana's remarks come after a spokesman (Ali Agha Mohammadi) for Iran's Supreme National Security Council said that Tehran will decide by Friday whether to resume some sensitive nuclear activities, despite the risk of torpedoing EU-Iran talks. Britain, France and Germany say such resumption would be a violation of an agreement that opened EU-Iran negotiations. Such a violation could lead the European in joining the U.S. in referring Iran to the UN Security Council. The United States says Iran is secretly trying to develop nuclear arms, which Iran denies.
