Iran completes study on nuclear incentive package: FM Spokesman

Tehran, Aug 20, IRNA-Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said here Sunday that Iran has finished study on a package of incentives offered by the Group 5+1.

A package of incentives was drawn up by the five permanent UN Security Council members -- Britain, France, the United States, China and Russia -- plus Germany (Group 5+1) and offered to Iran by European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana on June 6 in exchange for suspension of its uranium enrichment activities.

Iran has said its response to the package would be ready by August 22.

"The proposed package had different aspects. Iran will also present a multi-dimensional response to the package," Asefi told domestic and foreign reporters at his weekly press conference.

"There are still questions about certain parts of the proposed package but some other parts are acceptable," he added.

Asefi cautioned the Europeans not to destroy all the bridges behind them by imposing sanctions against Iran.

Asked about the UN Security Council Resolution 1696 on Iran's nuclear case, he added, "Our assessment is that the resolution is illogical and unacceptable." Elsewhere in his remarks, Asefi said the Lebanese Hizbollah's victory was a turning point in international relations, adding, "The events that took place in Lebanon mark the start of the Zionist regime's collapse."
