(IRNA) - Europe's package of incentives offered to Iran does not talks of sanctions, an MP said here Tuesday.

The rapporteur of Majlis' National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Kazem Jalali, made the remarks while speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an open session of parliament, reports Trend.

On June 6 European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana paid a visit to Iran to hand over a package of incentives approved by representatives of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council -- Russia, China, Britain, France and the United States -- plus Germany to Tehran in exchange for suspension of uranium enrichment and resumption of discussion on guarantees over its nuclear activities.

"The package partly covers the nuclear issue and Iran's economic cooperation with Europe.

"I hope officials in charge of reviewing the proposed package will examine the proposals in detail," Jalali said.

He expressed hope the Islamic Republic of Iran would reach agreement with Europe on the proposals through observance of pertinent principles.

"There are serious discussions for Iran to also present its own proposals and views to Europe."

The MP said Iran "had no role in codifying Europe's proposals" but that it is the main issue.

"It should be able to express its proposals and viewpoints." Asked about Europe's acceptance of uranium enrichment on laboratory scale, he said "Iran intends to have its own enrichment but the sides can agree on the scale."
