We continue to have serious concerns about Iran's nuclear programme. Together with the French and German Governments and representatives of the European Union, we are engaged in dialogue with the Iranian Government in order to resolve these concerns. The Government believe that, to restore confidence in the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear programme, it is essential for Iran to agree, as part of this process, to cease permanently all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs published on 18 January a White Paper, Iran's nuclear programme: a collection of documents" which draws together public documents on Iran's nuclear programme since September 2002.
