Iran-EU Nuclear Talks In Vienna End

Iranian nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani is in Vienna (file photo) (epa) March 3, 2006 -- The German and French foreign ministers say European talks with Iran have ended without agreement.

Today's talks were the latest attempt to end the deadlock over Iran's nuclear program.

The talks came ahead of a meeting on March 6 of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on whether to refer Iran to the UN Security Council for possible sanctions. Western governments fear that Tehran may be seeking to develop nuclear weapons. Tehran denies it is seeking nuclear arms.

Two days of talks between Iranian and Russian officials in Moscow ended on March 2 without a breakthrough. Russia had proposed enriching uranium for Iran as a means of allaying concerns about the nature of Iran's nuclear program.
