Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, as initial position "we want to talk, and are interested in a solution, but of course we will be negotiating to get what we want" sounds reasonable. No point in giving up positions before the negotiations starts, which is also why demanding stuff before negotiations can start is such an obvious way not to get negotiations started.
