Official urges logical response to 5+1 offer

TEHRAN, July 4 (MNA) – Expediency Council Secretary Mohsen Rezaii on Friday said Tehran should adopt a reasonable approach to the world powers’ offer of incentives meant to end a long running dispute between Iran and the West over Tehran’s nuclear program.

UN foreign policy chief Javier Solana on June 14 presented Iran with a repackaged offer of incentives on behalf of the six world powers (Britain, the United States, Russia, China, France, and Germany) in exchange for a freeze in Iran’s uranium enrichment activities.

 

The package which follows an original proposal in 2006, offers nuclear cooperation and wider trade in aircraft, energy, high technology, and agriculture.

 

However the 27-nation European Union agreed to impose tougher sanction on Iran ahead of receiving its response to the fresh incentives.

 

“The solution to (the nuclear dispute) is that Iran and the EU start negotiations seriously,” Rezaii told reporters.

 

He accused the United States of preventing a diplomatic solution to the nuclear dispute, saying, “The U.S. does not want Iran to choose the path of diplomacy to resolve this issue. They intend to lead us to a deadlock.”
