E.U. Led Iran Nuclear Negotiations to Resume
NY Times – The global powers dealing with Iran’s disputednuclear program said Tuesday that they had accepted its offer to resume negotiations broken off in stalemate more than a year ago — a move that could help relieve increased pressure from Israel to use military force against Tehran.
“I have offered to resume talks with Iran on the nuclear issue,” said Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s foreign policy chief, who represents the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany as the contact on the nuclear issue with Iran. “We hope that Iran will now enter into a sustained process of constructive dialogue which will deliver real progress.”
