Iran's letter to the Six Powers on nuclear talks
BRUSSELS, Aug 6 (AFP) Aug 06, 2008
Below is the text of Iran's letter to the six powers, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia:
Pursuant to Geneva's constructive talks and submitted proposal by the Islamic Republic of Iran on the modality of continued negotiations and in view of the existing commonalities in both proposed plans as stated by the participants in the meeting, an agreement was made for further reflection on both proposals in order to provide each other with a 'clear response'.
The Islamic Republic of Iran with good will, a constructive approach and a strategic determination to continued negotiations has again carefully considered views as expressed in the Geneva meeting to produce a comprehensive agreement for cooperation, one which can address our common concerns and be based on our collective obligations and set an agenda for consulting all interested parties in order to reach an acceptable outcome.
Now the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to provide a 'clear response' to your proposal at the earliest opportunity while simultaneously expecting to receive your 'clear response' to our questions and ambiguities as well.
Undoubtedly such mutual clarification can pave the way for a speedy and transparent negotiating process with a bright prospect and provide grounds for cooperation.
The second phase in negotiations can commence as early as possible if there is such willingness on your side.All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
