Tehran Times: Iran seeks "strategic partnership" with Europe

BERLIN (IRNA) -- Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani does not rule out an industrial uranium enrichment, the Munich-based Focus news magazine reported Saturday. Asked by Focus whether Iran which has so far used only a few centrifuges to enrich uranium for research purposes, wants to enrich on an industrial scale, Larijani replied, "Ideally yes."

According to Focus, Larijani rejected again western calls for a suspension of uranium enrichment during his 10-hour meetings with EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier near Berlin on Wednesday and Thursday.

Larijani and Solana said earlier progress had been made in their discussions over Iran's nuclear program and talks would resume next week.
