On 1 October 2009, in Geneva, Javier Solana, Secretary General of the Council of the EU and High Representative for CFSP, assisted at a new round of talks with Iran on its nuclear ambitions.
Iran was represented by Saeed Jalili, Iran's Chief Nuclear Negotiator and Permanent Secretary of Iran's National Security Council.
The latest round of talks came more than one year after Javier Solana travelled to Tehran to deliver a proposal on behalf of the 'EU3+3' group, which includes the five permanent Members of the UN Security Council - the United Kingdom, France, the United States, Russia, China, and Germany.
Javier Solana met Saeed Jalili several times in 2008. He travelled to Tehran in June 2008 to deliver the demands and met with him in Geneva in July 2008 for official talks. SHOTLIST
