Iran responds but offers no clear answer

Latest update : 2008-08-05

Iran has handed in its response to the deal put forward by six world powers, under which there would be less sanctions against Iran if it agreed to freeze its nuclear programme. But it doesn't mention the freeze-for-freeze issue.

 

TEHRAN - The letter Iran has handed over to world powers did not mention the idea of freezing its nuclear work, an Iranian official said on Tuesday -- a step the West demanded to avert more U.N. sanctions.

 

Six world powers have offered to refrain from steps to impose more sanctions if Iran freezes expansion of its nuclear work -- an initial step in getting talks going on a broader solution.

 

"The letter handed over is not an answer to the offered package (by world powers) ... The letter does not mention the freeze-for-freeze issue," the senior Iranian official told Reuters.
