April 20, 2007 -- Talks between Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, and European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana will resume on April 25.
Iran's official news agency says Larijani and Solana spoke by telephone on April 19 and agreed to hold a new round of talks next week.
Solana's spokeswoman, Christina Gallach, today confirmed the April 25 meeting, but did not specify where the talks would take place.
The UN Security Council last month imposed new sanctions on Iran over its refusal to halt its uranium-enrichment activities.
Tehran says its nuclear program is entirely peaceful, but Western countries remain suspicious about Iran's nuclear intentions.
On March 24, the UN Security Council adopted a new round of sanctions against Iran. Tehran denounced the move as "illegal, useless, and unjustified." more
