Iranian, European Officials To Discuss Nuclear Program

19 April 2005 -- Officials from Germany, France, and Britain are expected to meet with Iranian authorities in Geneva today in the latest round of talks over Iran's controversial nuclear program.

The three European countries are offering Iran economic and security incentives if it ends uranium-enrichment activities -- a process that could be used to produce nuclear weapons.

But Iran is refusing to abandon uranium enrichment, saying its nuclear activities are only for peaceful energy producing purposes.

The United States has called for the matter to be brought before the UN Security Council, which could impose economic sanctions on Iran.
