Iran at critical juncture in nuke talks

TEHRAN (dpa) - Iran has reached a critical juncture in the talks with the European Union over the nuclear dispute, former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani was quoted Wednesday by the students' news agency ISNA as saying.
"After three rounds of talks with the Europeans, we have reached now a critical juncture in which we have to show both patience and wisdom to get the suitable results," Rafsanjani said. Rafsanjani, still influential as head of an arbitration council and potential candidate for next May's presidential elections, charged the Europeans of trying to impose their demands on Iran.

"Iran's demands for having peaceful nuclear technology are both legal and legitimate and the Europeans should get rational and stop imposing their demands," Rafsanjani said without further elaborating.

According to Tehran, Iran and the European Union trio of Britain, France and Germany have reached an initial agreement on the dispute over suspension of uranium enrichment, though no details have yet been officially disclosed."
