Iran-EU talks delayed; Tehran may not attend

Talks meant to give Tehran a last chance to avoid UN sanctions were in jeopardy on Wednesday, with diplomats and European officials saying Iran's chief nuclear negotiator had still not given word if he would meet with the European Union's foreign policy chief. The talks had been tentatively set for Wednesday in Vienna. But while the European Union's Javier Solana was ready to fly to the Austrian capital at short notice, the diplomats and officials told The Associated Press that Tehran had yet to say if nuclear envoy Ali Larijani would come. They demanded anonymity for sharing confidential information.
