Talks between European Union negotiators and Iran over its nuclear ambitions broke up Friday without any agreement, ministers said. "Unfortunately we were not able to reach an agreement," French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy told reporters. He said the EU had been demanding "full and complete suspension" of enrichment and related activities. The talks took place just three days before a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency's 35-nation board. The board put the US Security Council on alert Feb. 4 after Iran refused to heed requests to reimpose a suspension on enrichment, which can make both nuclear fuel or the fissile material for warheads. Douste-Blazy, Frank-Walter Steinmeier and a senior British official met with Iranian chief negotiator Ali Larijani after his arrival from Moscow, where Russia tried to persuade Iran to accept its offer to enrich uranium for Iran. Before leaving, Larijani warned that handing over the nuclear issue to the UN Security Council - as the United States has demanded - would kill Moscow's initiative.
