Effort to Resolve Nuclear Dispute in Almaty
France on Thursday confirmed that world powers will make a “substantial” new offer to Iran in a bid to resolve the dispute over its nuclear program at talks in Kazakhstan, AFP reported today.
The next round of talks between Iran and P5+1 will be held on 26 February in Almaty. France has not disclosed any details on the new offer to Iran.
“We will make a new offer that will contain significant new elements,” the French foreign ministry's deputy spokesman, Vincent Floreani, said.
“We hope that Iran will attend this meeting with a constructive spirit and will be ready to discuss, in detail and with a renewed perspective, aspects of its nuclear program that remain to be clarified,” Floreani said. “We want a true exchange, leading to concrete results.” (AFP, 21 February)
