The Deputy Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council has said the time and place for Tehran-EU talks have not been decided yet.


In an interview with IRNA, Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said while Ali Larijani and Javier Solana agreed in Turkey to meet within two weeks, the time and venue of their next meeting is yet to be specified.

EU Foreign Policy Chief, Javier Solana, has said he would likely meet Larijani sometime next week, but has refused to announce a specific date for talks.

Larijani, Iran's Secretary to the Supreme National Security Council held talks with Javier Solana in Ankara on April 25-26, when both men agreed to hold another meeting within two weeks.

When asked about Solana's request for Iran's suspension of uranium enrichment, Rahmani Fazli replied Iran has repeatedly said enrichment is out of the question.

Fazli said Iran will not accept suspension either during talks or as a result of negotiations.

He also reiterated Iran's rejection of an earlier proposal made by Western powers for the formation of an international consortium that would enrich uranium for Tehran outside of the country provided that Iran suspend its enrichment activities.

Fazli said proposals which include suspension are only aimed at "deluding public opinion" as Western countries threaten Iran with sanctions on the one hand while publicly inviting Tehran back to the negotiating table on the other.
