Crunch talks on Iran nuclear plan
Angela Merkel and Condoleezza Rice
Angela Merkel and Condoleezza Rice discussed a joint approach
US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and foreign ministers from five other major powers are discussing their next steps in the Iran nuclear issue.

The meeting comes a day after the UN Security Council finally approved a non-binding call on Iran to end uranium enrichment, after weeks of wrangling.

The ministers in Berlin are discussing what to do if Iran does not comply.

Iran has rejected the UN's call, saying enrichment will continue, and insisting its nuclear activities are peaceful.


The Council noted with serious concern... a number of outstanding issues which could have a military nuclear dimension

Security Council statement
Will US use military option?
In addition to the US, the Berlin talks include the four other veto-wielding permanent members of the Security Council - China, France, Russian and the UK - as well as Germany.

Ms Rice held separate talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel before the talks.

The 15-member Security Council unanimously approved the non-binding statement on Wednesday - one month after Iran's nuclear activities were reported to the Council by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

US ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, said the vote "sends an unmistakable message to Iran that its efforts to deny the obvious fact of what it is doing are not going to be sufficient".

But Iran was defiant. "We will not, definitely, suspend enrichment," its ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Aliasghar Soltaniyeh, said on Thursday.

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Tehran was still open to talks on the issue with the IAEA, but that there was "mistrust" over negotiations with European nations.

He condemned the West's "unjustified propaganda", insisting that Iran's nuclear programme was peaceful.

'Forward-looking discussion'

The approved UN statement was the third version of a draft drawn up by France and the UK, which made significant concessions to Russia and China.

Iran insists its nuclear programme is for peaceful means
Moscow and Beijing, both allies of Iran, were concerned that Security Council involvement could lead to sanctions against Iran and wanted the IAEA to take the lead.

The approved statement repeats the call for Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment activities, but omits some of the detailed demands of earlier drafts - referring instead to an IAEA resolution on the issue.

It again calls for the IAEA's director general to report back on Iran's compliance, but extends the deadline from 14 to 30 days.

And while it no longer says the proliferation of nuclear weapons is a threat to international peace and security, the draft statement does refer to the Security Council's responsibility to maintain peace.

John Bolton said the major powers had raced to get a final Council-approved statement so the Berlin meeting would not be burdened with further negotiations over the text.

"The ministers will be having a forward-looking discussion," he said.

The working lunch brings Ms Rice together with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Britain's Jack Straw, Philippe Douste-Blazy of France, Sergei Lavrov of Russia, Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Dai Bingguo and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana.

I cant wait for 24 months from now when we find out that Iran was actually not involved at all in the enrichment of uranium and all the uranium they had actually was sold to them from an american or canadian company during the Iraq Iran war. The whole thing is about controlling Oil resources there can be no question of that.

Sigh poor cunts.

Why doesn't the US lead by example and stop their own enrichment efforts? I'd love to see the media pick up on that - or is that too obvious?

The UN nuclear watchdog agency has like, seen their enrichment plants and Iran itself openly admits to having such a program. I don't think anyone is doubting this fact.
