EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana reacted cautiously Tuesday to a proposal from a senior Iranian nuclear official that France enrich Iran's uranium on Iranian soil to satisfy international demands for foreign supervision of the Islamic republic's nuclear program. "That is something we have to analyze in greater detail," Solana said on the sidelines of a European Union defense ministers' meeting in Finland. "It's an interesting thing, but it's difficult to put it in place." Solana said the idea of an international consortium to oversee Iran's enrichment had long been discussed in his talks with Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, but added that the latest Iranian suggestion may lead to an intensification of that line of discussion. "It's an idea that was talked about lightly, maybe now we can talk about it more seriously," he said.
