Iran To Resume Nuclear Talks With European States

13 July 2004 -- Iran has agreed to resume talks on its nuclear program with Britain, Germany, and France.

Iran's Supreme National Security Council announced today that the talks will take place in July but gave no further details.

Iran was upset in June by a resolution sponsored by those three European states that rebuked Tehran for poor cooperation with the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Iranian officials deny U.S. allegations that they are using the country's civilian nuclear program to hide an atomic-weapons program.

Yesterday, Iran ruled out holding direct talks with the United States on its nuclear activities.
