grand cross of the order of Christ

On Saturday, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Tehran considered late October or early November as an appropriate time for a resumption of the talks but a spokesman for EU's Ashton said no date had been set. "Mrs. Ashton is still ready to talk to Iran and is hopeful that this will be possible," spokesman Darren Ennis told AFP in response to Mottaki's remarks. Mehmanparast directly blamed Ashton for the stalemate. "If she is really eager for negotiations, she should be more active," he insisted, adding that her predecessor Javier Solana was "more active." "We have announced our readiness for negotiations. But the other side ... is not really following up, or is not serious" about resuming the dialogue, he said. Link
