"Very soon I will respond to the letter given to me by the six foreign ministers," he told a press conference at the UN Headquarters.

On June 14, European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana handed the offer to Iran on behalf of France, Britain, Russia, China, the United States and Germany.

Mottaki described the recent developments regarding the Iranian nuclear issue as "very positive and constructive", taking note of a proposal offered by Iran itself, the recent visit to Iran by Solana and the representatives of the six countries and the six-nation nuclear offer.

He said that these moves "paved the way for creating a new sort of atmosphere" and that Iran will look "constructively in detail and seriously at the issues raised ..."

"I hope we will be able to enter a new process with a multifaceted approach in mind," he said.

Mottaki dismissed the possibility of Israeli attacks, saying that the country is "still suffering from the aftershocks of its domestic developments and regional developments following its defeat in the war in Lebanon."

"We do not see any chance for this regime to venture into a new adventure," he added.

The United States and its Western allies fear that Teheran is trying to build nuclear weapons. Iran insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.
