Mottaki: Iran to answer P5+1 proposed package in August

(IRNA) - Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said here Thursday that Iran will table its response to the P5+1 package of incentives in August.

"The response will not be sooner than August; I said Iran will offer its response in August but did not referred to the date," said Mottaki in a press conference after attending a UN conference on the illicit small arms trade, reports Trend.

Mottaki said, "It is necessary to say that response to the package in August would be possible if questions and ambiguities are cleared."

Iran's top diplomat said specialized committees are now busing studying different sections of the incentive package and once the investigation come to results, Tehran will give necessary response.

He said there are some questions and ambiguities concerning details of the package, which Tehran hopes would be addressed in dialogues. "Tehran welcomes any dialogue which would address the questions and ambiguities."

The Iranian minister then referred to the meeting of Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani and the EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana, saying it would possibly take place in the first half of July.

He hoped that Solana would in the talks address some of the questions and ambiguities regarding the package.

Somewhere in his remarks, Mottaki pointed to Iran's positive cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for a period of 36 years and said it all indicates Tehran has been sticking to its commitments.

"After more than 2,100-man/day inspections, a document in more than 1,000 pages on Iran's peaceful nuclear activities was sent to the IAEA, indicating not a single case of diversion," said Mottaki.

He said Iran is entitled to peaceful nuclear energy per NPT.

"Preventing countries' access to uranium enrichment runs against NPT; confidence-building is a two-way road; we have taken steps towards confidence-building and now its the turn of the other party to take necessary steps."

He went on to say that efforts should be made to further strengthen NPT, rather than depriving countries from their right to enrichment and access to the peaceful technology.

Iran has been acting transparently with regards to nuclear technology, feeling committed to have continued cooperation with IAEA and act within the NPT framework, he added.

Elsewhere in the interview, Mottaki said Iran will not accept any duty beyond NPT. "Suspension of enrichment is a request running against the NPT spirit," he announced.
