"The problem is that the Europeans should give up their illogical stance," Sirus Naseri, a senior member of Iran's nuclear negotiating team, told state television. "What we have said is that our fuel production will continue." But Washington and the EU say the only acceptable guarantee is for Iran to scrap its nuclear fuel production plans altogether and rely on the supply of reactor fuel from abroad. Hassan Rohani, Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, said a key Iran-EU meeting would be held in Paris on March 23. "It will be a very important session and we hope to reach an acceptable conclusion through legal and diplomatic means," the Jomhuri-ye Eslami newspaper quoted him as saying. "The continuation of the talks between Iran and Europe will depend on the March 23 meeting."
