A senior Iranian official warned Saturday that further UN sanctions over Teheran's contentious nuclear program could derail ongoing negotiations toward a settlement. Ali Larijani, Iran's top nuclear envoy, said after his latest round talks with European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana that the international community should seek to keep negotiations alive, and chided nations that sought to punish the Islamic republic. It would be natural for some to try to destroy the negotiation process, Larijani told a news conference, referring to the prospect of new UN Security Council sanctions. However, "for (most) countries, the prevalence of tranquility would be more important," he said through an interpreter at a news conference after the talks in Lisbon, Portugal.
