Elmar Brok (EPP-ED/CDU): Nuclear power row: Iran's answer is insufficient

"Iran's refusal of the international Community's compromise package on its nuclear power programme is not acceptable", said Elmar Brok MEP, Chairman of the European Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, in a first reaction today in Brussels.

"Tehran remains obliged to fulfil the United Nation's Security Council Resolution 1696. This means in particular the obligation to stop all preparations for uranium enrichment until August 31st at the latest", stressed Brok.

The Chairman pointed out to the fact that there had been more than sufficient time for Iran to answer to the compromise package proposed by the Sixpower-Delegation composed by the U.S., Russia, China, France, the U.K. and Germany. "Iran's attempt to ask for more detailed information and thus to gain further time, is detrimental to the country's credibility", Brok said.
