British FM to Visit Tehran

Iranian newspapers and news agencies, quoting foreign sources, are reporting that the British Foreign Minister David Miliband is to visit Tehran soon to offer a new incentive package on behalf of the EU-3 to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue.

The reports indicate that Miliband will hold talks with President Ahmadinejad, Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki and other senior officials responsible for the country’s nuclear program.

On Thursday, President Ahmadinejad had flatly rejected any negotiations over the nuclear program with any countries or agencies other than the IAEA. Miliband’s visit would contradict that policy.
