The following is the full text of The conclusions on Iran issued Tuesday by the EU foreign ministers in Brussels:
The Council discussed the EU's relations with Iran in the light of the November IAEA Board of Governors meeting. It fully supported the IAEA resolution of November 26 and welcomed Iran's commitment to fully and promptly comply with its requirements, including the immediate implementation pending the entry into force of an Additional Protocol to its safeguard arrangements and the suspension of all enrichment- related and reprocessing activities.
The Council reiterated the EU's readiness to explore ways to develop wider political and economic cooperation with Iran. This can only be achieved through full international confidence in Iran's adherence to non proliferation and, in particular, in the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program, as well as improvements in the areas of human rights, fight against terrorism, and Iran's position on the Middle East Peace Process.
The Council requested the High Representative to visit Tehran early in 2004 to discuss the modalities of taking forward the EU's dialogue with Iran in all areas.
The Council agreed that it would review progress in all areas of concern in the light of J.Solana's visit and the next report of the Director General of the IAEA.
