The six-nation talks on Iran’s nuclear issue were held today in Shanghai. China said the six countries reached “important consensus” to formulate a new plan to deal with the nuclear standoff. The participants focused on incentives rather than sanctions to lure Iran into halting its uranium enrichment program.

“We have just passed the Security Council resolution. So there is a balance here between the two pathways: the incentive and the disincentive pathway,” said US State Department Spokesman Sean McCormack.

Envoys from Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States, Germany and the EU participated in Shanghai meeting.
