Iran said Wednesday it was confident US-European efforts to refer it to the UN Security Council will fail amid reluctance from Russia, China and Arab countries to take the step. The hard-liner president chided the West, saying it deal with Iran with more "logic." But Iran's attempts to resume negotiations on its nuclear program met rejection from Europe and the United States. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the EU's foreign policy chief, Javier Solana, rejected any return to talks, which Europe called off after Iran ended its freeze on enrichment research earlier this month. "There's not much to talk about," Rice said during a photo session at the State Department with Solana.
