Iran: Nuclear talks likely in mid-November

Iran's foreign minister said nuclear talks with world powers could take place in mid-November, Iranian news agencies said Saturday.

Manouchehr Mottaki, in Brussels, Belgium, for a meeting, said November 15 has been suggested for Iran's meeting with the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council - the United States, Britain, France, China, and Russia - and Germany. Collectively, the group is known as the P5 plus one.

"Both sides are now working on confirming it and agreeing on the location for the talks," Mottaki said, according to the semi-official Mehr News Agency.

Meanwhile, Iran delayed the start-up of its Bushehr nuclear plant because of technical problems, the official Islamic Republic News Agency said.

Mohammad Ahmadian, deputy director of the Atomic Energy Organization, said a leak in a pool in the middle of the reactor has been repaired but the plant will not be functional for another month, IRNA reported.

    talk is all you will ever get from them. Stall tactics , but be p.c. And let them drag it out until they actually have it. Then what , lots of talk and no real action, ever. They are taking notes from n.k. How to b.s. Your way to nuclear armament. Using our money no less, and still p.c. All the way obama is hugging the ones who are killing your children in the name of p.c. I guess struther martin was right, some men you just cant reach!

    I'm not sure why the US can't assassinate these saber rattling dictators. Given enough time it might actually spark revolt in these countries. Worst case scenario it keeps others in check

    No, let them talk in mid November. I'm sure all the parties involved are aware who has the most power.

    We've been through this BS before. What exactlly is there to discuss? Let Iran stop cold its nuclear weapon efforts and prove it. Wish we had a president with at least an ounce of guts. Force is one thing they understand, otherwise we'll have a world in much more peril than ever before.

    We will have to invade Iran with ground troops but first let's allow them this one last chance before their Army is removed from the face of the Earth and their leaders are killed or captured by our soldiers.

    President Ford introduced a law and it passed prohibiting the US from assisinating leaders from foreign countries no matter how evil they are. So much for Good vs Evil. Thanks Ford, great law you left us with.

    Now Ahmadinjad is really messing with President Obama. He says, sometime in mid November talks might resume.
    Obama needs a specific date. He's got his party schedule of one a week to maintain and he can't have a hangover while being briefed about Iranian nuclear weapons negotiations. Also he needs to make plans to hookup with one of his girl friends during the party and he'll need a full night's rest before such an important briefing. But playing hide the wee, ah let me just close by writing the following.
    Having a party once a week is what most other Americans are not doing nowadays. But they are paying for his weekly parties.
