Iran calls for more negotiations on nuclear program

[JURIST] Iran said Thursday that it is working on a new proposal to negotiate with the West [JURIST report] regarding its nuclear program, expressing an interest in negotiating with countries other than Great Britain, France and Germany. The three core negotiating countries cancelled a meeting with Iran scheduled for August 31 after the country resumed its uranium enrichment program earlier this month. Chief Iranian nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani said that Iran wishes to meet with other board members of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) [official website] despite the group's previous request for Iran to cease its nuclear program [JURIST report, IAEA resolution]. Larijani asked that European countries should come to the bargaining table with a "logical approach of mutual interest instead of making obstacles." Reuters has more; from Iran, state-run IRNA has local coverage.
