Iranian foreign minister in Slovenia for talks

Iran's foreign minister arrived Wednesday in Slovenia, which currently chairs the UN nuclear watchdog's council of governors, as world powers were discussing a new package of sanctions against his country for its refusal to suspend uranium enrichment. Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was scheduled to meet Slovenian counterpart Dimitrij Rupel, as well as President Janez Drnovsek and Prime Minister Janez Jansa. Slovenia's government said the talks would be focused on bilateral relations, but would likely touch on Iran's nuclear program, as Slovenia now heads the council of governors at the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency.
