Iran Reviewing Group 5+1 Package

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said today that Iran is reviewing a package of incentives by six world powers with a “constructive view” [IRNA, 29 May].

“Iran will give an answer to the package after examining it,” Mottaki told reporters in Tehran.

On 14 June, EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana handed the offer of incentives to the Iranian authorities on behalf of UN Security Council permanent members - France, Britain, Russia, China and the US - plus Germany (Group 5+1) in a bid to persuade Iran to halt uranium enrichment.
