Iran not yet decided on nuclear talks, Foreign Ministry says
Iran has not yet decided on attending talks on its nuclear programme, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Tuesday.
"Evaluations are still going on as not only the date and venue but also the agenda should be clarified," Mehmamparast said, DPA reported.
The European Union's foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, has proposed talks between Iran and the United States, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany to resume November 15-17 in Vienna.
"We want the agenda to have content and not just form," Mehmanparast said.
The other six countries involved want to focus on the nuclear dispute and Iran's refusal to suspend uranium enrichment while Tehran wants to discuss global issues.
"Pressures and ultimatums will not have any impact whatsoever on Iran's firm willingness to follow its rights on pursuing a peaceful nuclear programme," the spokesman added.
Iran's critics, however, worry it is using its nuclear programme to develop weapons.
