EU Ministers Seek Deal on Nuclear Program

October 21, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

British, French and German foreign ministers converged on Tehran with a proposal aimed at persuading Iran to dispel worries that its nuclear program could be used to make bombs.

Diplomats said the European Union ministers would demand that Iran cooperate fully with the International Atomic Energy Agency, accept tougher U.N. inspections and halt uranium enrichment.

In return, the ministers would offer to recognize Iran's right to a nuclear energy program, give some technical assistance and guarantee Iran's access to imported fuel for nuclear power.
