Iran's envoy to Brussels calls on EU to take 'new approach' to nuclear standoff

Iran's new envoy to the EU is calling on European nations to take a "new approach" in efforts to resolve the international standoff over its nuclear program rather than backing new sanctions against Tehran.

 

Ali Asghar Kaji says Iran would like to "play its role" in becoming an energy supplier to the 27-nation union but says moves by the EU to get a new UN resolution applying fresh sanctions are unjustified. (AP)
