Talks between Solana, Iran end without result

The European Union's foreign policy chief on Monday renewed an offer from six world powers to negotiate differences with Iran over its nuclear ambitions in a phone call with Tehran's top atomic negotiator, but the two sides came no closer to bridging differences, an EU official said. Cristina Gallach, spokeswoman for Javier Solana, the EU's senior foreign policy official, said the two agreed to continue talking. Ali Larijani, Iran's senior nuclear envoy accepted "an invitation for future contacts" with Solana, she told The Associated Press.
