Iranian nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani did not resign but was fired, the London-based Asharq Alawsat reported Monday. According to the report, Larijani threatened to quit after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denied Larijani's statement that there were advances in negotiations on Iran's disputed nuclear program, but he never acted on his threat. An associate of Larijani said the negotiator heard about his "resignation" from the media, Asharq reported.
