Responding to indications from Iran last week that it was prepared for new negotiations with the West over its nuclear program, the German Foreign Ministry said Monday that there had been no official notice from Teheran.
"We have taken notice of the press reports. I can, however, tell you that by us there have been no official notices from the Iranian government," read a German Foreign Ministry statement. "In this respect, from our view, we are waiting for a signal from Iran and nothing has changed with respect to the unsatisfactory position. Our telephone number is known, and we hope that the announcement in the press will mean substantial results on an official level."
