Iran, EU to continue nuclear talks

Press TV - Iran's top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili and EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana have agreed to continue nuclear talks.

In a Monday telephone conversation, the two sides stressed that the path of the Geneva negotiations should continue in a positive and constructive atmosphere.

Jalili and Solana held talks in Geneva on July 19 on a package of incentives drawn up by the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (G5+1).

The package requires Iran to suspend enrichment in return for political and economic benefits.

As a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Iran has ruled out the possibility of bringing its nuclear enrichment program to a halt, arguing that it has an inalienable right to enrich uranium for peaceful purposes.

Iran believes giving in to Western demands that it renounce its nuclear rights would only lead world powers to further pressure the country and would eventually not lead to a change in the West's stance on Tehran.
