The European Union (EU) on Saturday said that it regretted Iran's decision to resume suspended nuclear activities.

"The EU regrets that Iran has chosen to announce this unilateral move at a moment when international confidence in the peaceful nature of its program is far from restored," said the EU in a written statement in the name of its presidency Austria.

The EU said it views "with serious concern" Iran's intention to resume suspended nuclear activities.

The EU also said in the statement that "it is surprising and unreasonable that Iran proposes to do this at a moment when Britain, France and Germany were exploring with Iran the possibility of a return to negotiations."

In November, Iran's top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani sent a letter to the EU-3, Britain, France and Germany, urging to resume talks on Iran's nuclear issue.

The EU thus urged Iran not to take the step of resuming nuclear activities, for that would "violate both the letter and the spirit of the eight previous resolutions" of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Iran made its most recent announcement to resume nuclear fuel research on Jan. 3, which drew the IAEA's decision to postpone its talks with Iran over the nuclear issue.

On Jan. 5, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned that the United States is prepared to bring Iran before the U.N. Security Council should Teheran carry out its latest threat to resume nuclear fuel research.
