Iran, 5+1 to draw up new modality plan: Mottaki

TEHRAN, July 13 (MNA) – Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki announced on Sunday that the July 19 talks between Iran and the 5+1 group will focus on drafting a new modality plan for nuclear talks.

Iranian top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, who will represents the 5+1 group, are scheduled to meet in Geneva on July 19 to continue negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program.

 

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany last month offered Iran a revised package of proposals in exchange for a halt in Tehran’s uranium enrichment activities.

 

The package, which is a follow-up of an original proposal in 2006, offers nuclear cooperation and wider trade in aircraft, energy, high technology and agriculture.

 

Iran has also put forward its own package of proposals on resolving international challenges including the threat of nuclear proliferation.

 

Earlier this month the Islamic Republic provided its response to a letter by the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia, and Germany on ending the West’s prolonged nuclear standoff with Iran.

 

Tehran has refused to freeze its uranium enrichment work as a precondition for talks and has said that it will only negotiate on the common points presented in the two separate packages.
