Iran discloses nuclear package soon
Adjust font size:

A senior Iranian lawmaker revealed on Saturday that the country will disclose soon its proposal package aiming to resolve its nuclear standoff with the West, the State-run satellite Press TV reported.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, was quoted as saying that Iran will provide the UN nuclear watchdog, or the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and the 5+1 Group, namely the United States, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany, with the new proposals.

"The Iranian package of proposals will guarantee our enrichment rights," Boroujerdi said, adding that "I do not believe the Islamic Republic would refuse negotiations."

The Iranian lawmaker, however, ruled out Iran's consideration of an offer asked by the 5+1 Group if it merely "focuses on a halt in uranium enrichment."

The United States and its Western allies have accused Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program. Iran has denied the charges and insisted that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

The U.N. Security Council has imposed three sanctions against Tehran's nuclear program since Dec. 2006.

On April 16, officials from the United States, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany convene in Shanghai, China, to discuss a plan to restart talks on Iran's nuclear issue.
