Hosseini made the remarks during his weekly press briefing with domestic and foreign reporters.
He said such offers were being made on the eve of visits to the region by the US secretaries of defense and state.
"The region needs peace, stability and security," Hosseini stressed.
He added, "Iran has formulated several mechanisms to counter those effects by forming technical and economic committees." As for the latest agreements reached by Iran and the
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the spokesman said the agreements led into strengthening of a trend of rationalism and realism among the 5+1 Group member states and those who follow up Tehran's nuclear negotiations with the UN nuclear watchdog.
He said "Adoption of (anti-Iran) resolutions would only complicate and politicize the situation and make reaching any solution difficult."
Asked about the time and venue of the third round of talks between Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, and the European Union Foreign Policy chief, Javier Solana, the spokesman said:
"Consultations are underway to fix the time and venue of the talks."
"Mr. Larijani has not accepted the 'timeot' plan. He just gave some explanations about it saying if the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Mohamed ElBaradei, is serious about the plan, he could raise it during Iran-IAEA talks for more discussions," Hosseini said.
"The place to discuss subjects like the 'timeout' plan is during (Iran's nuclear) negotiations (with the IAEA) and this is Iran's stand in this regard," the spokesman stressed.
He added that the plan should be reviewed within the framework of Iran's negotiations with the UN nuclear watchdog over Tehran's peaceful nuclear activities.
"The reports were not confirmed by any South Korean officials," Hosseini said at his weekly press briefing for domestic and foreign reporters.
He added, "Seoul is continuing its previous stand vis-a-vis Iran considering the country as one of the world's safest places for tourism."
Hosseini's comments were made in reference to some recent media reports that South Korea had banned its nationals from travelling to Iran, Afghanistan and Somalia calling them "unsafe" places after a group of its citizens had recently faced problems in Afghanistan.
"The reports were released by one of the South Korean media but were not confirmed by any officials of the country," Hosseini said.
Commenting on Iran-Egypt relations, the spokesman
said, "Nothing new has happened in this connection and our stands are the same
that we announced before."
