Larijani: Iran's Parliament will study G5+1 package carefully

Tehran, June 15, IRNA - Majlis speaker Ali Larijani said on Sunday that the Iranian parliament will study the Group 5+1 package of incentives precisely.

The package was handed over to Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki by European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana who arrived in Tehran on Friday for talks aimed at helping resolve a dispute over Iran's nuclear program.

Solana also presented a message to Mottaki from foreign ministers of the group's six member states (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council -- China, Russia, France, Britain and the US -- plus Germany).

The EU official is accompanied by political directors of the G5+1 states foreign ministries.

Larijani said that Tehran welcomed resolving the issue of its peaceful nuclear activities through dialogue.

However, he suggested the G5+1 member states "not to develop an amnesia theory about Iran as it is just wasting of time."

Solana says new package is full of opportunities

EU policy chief Javier Solana said that the new package of incentives offered by world powers to Iran to halt nuclear enrichment is "full of opportunities".

Solana, who made the offer in Tehran, said the six powers are ready to help develop Iran's nuclear energy program.

The deal also involves trade benefits but Iran rejects any demands to halt uranium enrichment.

Solana said the six powers - five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council the US, China, Russia, France, Britain plus Germany - were ready to fully recognize Iran's right to have nuclear energy.

"We are ready to cooperate with Iran in the development of a modern nuclear energy program based on the most modern generation of light water reactors," he told a press conference after meeting Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, as well as the country's top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili.

"We can offer Iran legally binding fuel supply guarantees. We are offering the construction of nuclear power plants."
