Iran Threatens to End Nuclear Talks

Iran’s supreme leader threatened to pull out of negotiations if European countries press their demand for total suspension of uranium enrichment, as a new round of talks ended Wednesday without an agreement to avert the possible threat of U.N. sanctions. Britain, France and Germany are trying to work out a deal that would avoid a standoff with Iran over its nuclear program, which the United States says aims to develop nuclear weapons. The Europeans are offering Iran incentives — a trade deal and peaceful nuclear technology, including a light-water research reactor — in return for a halt in enrichment, which can produce fuel for both nuclear energy and atomic weapons. They have warned that most European states will back Washington’s call to refer Iran’s nuclear file to the U.N. Security Council for possible economic sanctions if Tehran doesn’t give up all uranium enrichment activities before the Nov. 25 meeting of the U.N. nuclear watchdog.Full Story
