Iranian and Swiss Representatives Discuss Restarting Nuclear Talks
May 6 (EIRNS)--This newservice, EIR, is currently seeking confirmation of the report in today's Tehran Times, that Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki met a Swiss envoy on the sidelines of the just-ended Sharm al-Sheikh conference, and accepted a Swiss proposal for restarting talks on the nuclear program.
This had been discussed also at an April 25-26 meeting between Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani and European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana in Turkey. The Swiss approach includes a staged plan leading to a simultaneous suspension of Iran's uranium enrichment work and of U.N. sanctions.
"Mottaki welcomed the Swiss proposal for the continuation of talks on Iran's peaceful nuclear programme," Tehran Times said.
