Iran to present new proposals to the West
Iran will present to the West a new package of "political, security and international" issues, the country's foreign minister said Saturday. "The package can be a good basis for talks with the West. The package will contain Iran's stances on political, security and international issues," Manouchehr Mottaki asid, according to Reuters.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy stated Wednesday that the Group of Eight major powers would give Tehran until September to accept negotiations over its nuclear works or face tougher sanctions.
Mottaki, however, said his state had not received "any new message" from the summit. "We have not received any new message from the G8. But based on the news we have received, they had different views on different issues which did not lead to a unanimous agreement in some areas," Mottaki said.
