European Union foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton intends to propose a meeting with Iran's chief nuclear energy negotiator for early December, an EU diplomat told Reuters on Friday.

Following consultations with the P5+1 powers (the United States, China, Russia, Germany, France and the United Kingdom), the diplomat said that Ashton has decided to suggest a December 5 meeting with Iranian official Saeed Jalili, according to the Reuters report.

Jalili had sent a letter to Ashton earlier this week to propose a meeting between the two set for either Nov. 23 or Dec. 5 in Turkey.

"Catherine Ashton is expected to respond to Iran by the end of the day and is expected to agree to Iran's proposal to meet on Dec. 5, but not in Istanbul," the official told Reuters. He added that the meeting with Jalili would take place in Europe and not Turkey, as the Iranians had originally requested.
