Iran: Nuclear Power

Volume 468: debated on Thursday 6 December 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress has been made in the talks between EU high representative Javier Solana and the Iranian nuclear negotiator towards meeting the mandatory UN requirement that Iran suspends the proliferation-sensitive aspects of its nuclear programme; and if he will make a statement.

Javier Solana met Iran's nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili on 30 November. Dr. Solana's staff reported to E3+3 Political Directors on 1 December that the meeting was ‘disappointing’. Accordingly, in line with the agreement I reached with my E3+3 colleagues in New York on 28 September, Political Directors agreed to prepare a new sanctions resolution to submit to the UN Security Council.
