WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Wednesday she believed Iran canceled plans to meet European officials on its nuclear program and that this suggested Tehran did not wish to suspend its nuclear activities.

“It is my understanding that — perhaps not surprisingly — they have canceled the meeting for now. That should tell us something,” Rice told reporters, referring to a meeting between European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana and Iranian negotiator Ali Larijani that had been set for Thursday.

“If the Iranians still wish to suspend and begin negotiations obviously that would be a good thing but given that they canceled the meeting, I don’t really know that that option is available,” she added.
