Iran has informed the European Union that it wants to resume talks regarding its nuclear program. According to Iran’s state media television on Friday the Iranian Supreme National Security Council stated in a letter to the European Union’s Foreign Policy Chief, Catherine Ashton that beginning November 10th the nation would like to resume nuclear discussions.
Since last year the P5+1, which consists of the U.N. Security Council members (United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia and China), and Germany have tried to convince Iran to use its enriched uranium solely for nuclear power stations with continuous U.N. supervision. Nuclear discussions between Iran and the P5+1 have been stalled since October of last year.
EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton attempted to resume talks with Iran earlier this month, which was followed by positive rumors of Iran’s willingness to negotiate. However, today Iran officially announced intentions to meet with the P5+1. According to Ashton, “We’re now in touch with Iran this morning to see whether we can agree on the time and place as quickly as possible.”
