Michael Mann quotes

What happens in the Arctic doesn't stay in the Arctic. It looks increasingly likely that the dramatic decrease in Arctic sea ice is impacting weather in mid-latitudes and may be at least partly responsible for the more dramatic, persistent and damaging weather anomalies we've seen so many of in recent years.feedback

Catherine Ashton has been negotiating on the behalf of the E3+3 for a number of years on this issue and now with the new government it has been possible to make much more progress whereas the previous government was not really interesting in engaging.feedback

It is always been the approach that there would be a first step, a confidence building step, and then there would be follow up steps. This is so complicated, that is not something you can simply deal with overnight. We are working in the way we've always been working to get an understanding with the Iranians that is robust, that is sustainable, that is verifiable, but of course there would need follow up work even if we reached an initial agreement.feedback

The dynamic for the next couple of days is yet to be decided. We will decide on the basis of what happened so far, how we will organise the work, but we just want to drive things forward, we want to have further narrowing of positions and make as much progress as we can. The most important thing is that any agreement that is done is a good deal, so it will take as long as it takes.feedback

If the Iranians are prepared to really address the core issues here, then of course we can adjust what we've said so far. But our proposals are on the table, remain on the table, and again I would stress that the ball is in the Iranians' court to really engage on the key issues here.feedback

While some observers note some issues that were similar to issues that came out last time that there were elections, generally it's a very positive picture.feedback

We have heard from the Iranians a willingness to be more transparent, more open, to discuss, but obviously we have to continue discussions to see what it is they want exactly. Because at the moment the finer details are missing.feedback

We hope that this will be a turning point for diplomacy. The last five rounds have not been very successful cause Iran has not engaged. If they follow up the warm words with concrete and really constructive proposals, then it could be a turning point. But let's not make any mistakes, let's not have any illusions, it is going to be a difficult process because this is a very complicated business.feedback

That is the endgame, but before then they of course have to start a process by actually engaging seriously and constructively in these negotiations, which they haven't done before. We're hoping that the new minister will match his words with his deeds and there will be something concrete from that side this time.feedback

We put a new offer on the table which addresses our main concerns to do with the Iranian nuclear programme, not least the 20 per cent enrichment question. We hope the Iranians will come back with a positive reaction to our proposals to deal with the concerns of the international community and to meet their international obligations under Security Council resolutions and the IAEA's findings.feedback

Any idea, for example, that they would ask us to ease our sanctions before we talk is out of the question. We have what we call our twin-track approach, so we are continuing with our sanctions against Iran.feedback

The fact that a gentleman whose companies have had their assets frozen is now challenging us in court suggests to us that he is very much concerned about the sanctions. And what we have heard from NGOs on the ground is that they are grateful for our sanctions regime and that they are being effective.feedback

The Commission has undertaken to improve and amend its code of conduct. This is what is already under way. And we intend to have that finalised before the end of the year.feedback

The way it works is that they get this payment for three years after they leave the Commission. If they get another job, then, if the salary of the new job added to this allowance takes them above what they were earning as a commissioner, then the allowance is cut. So there are possibilities for the allowance to be cut. If they have a job which is extremely well-paid, they don't get an allowance at all. That's the way the system works.feedback

At the moment, there is still a lot of waste because if apples or carrots or whatever, don't meet the standards, some time they are even thrown away which is in this period of high food prices, seems a completely stupid waste to us. So in the future, when this vote will happen, then people will be able to sell apples, cucumbers, pears, carrots, whatever size they are, whatever shape they are, as long as they are good quality food.feedback

I have heard people suggesting that there must be some sort of lapse in the controls in Great Britain. There is no evidence of that at all. We are assured that measures were taken by the British to bring the disease under control according to the rules.feedback

Since 1992, it has been compulsory to basically leave 10% of your land unplanted. It was originally introduced as a measure to control overproduction, obviously we have not overproduction anymore, we actually have a shortage of grain on the market.feedback
