Iran said Saturday it would be in the interests of both Tehran and the West to hold unconditional European Union talks to resolve a standoff over a controversial nuclear program. Mohammad Saeedi, the deputy head of the Atomic Energy Organization, reiterated that Iran would not accept any preconditions to resume talks that broke off last August. "If Europe chooses a radical stance to confront Iran and refers the country to the Security Council, we will use our options," Saeedi said. Iran has threatened to resume uranium enrichment and block UN inspections of its nuclear facilities unless the International Atomic Energy Agency stepped back from its resolution. The US and Europe want Iran to permanently scrap enrichment plans as a confidence-building measure, something Tehran said it was not prepared to do.
