Iran invites G-8 to negotiate over nuclear program

July 16, 2006 11:04

Iran said Sunday that an incentives package presented last month by Western powers was an "acceptable basis" for negotiations over Tehran's disputed nuclear program. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi also urged negotiations over the program, calling on the eight major world powers meeting in St. Petersburg, Russia, to choose dialogue with Iran. "Dialogue is the correct path. We can achieve acceptable results in this path. The path of extremism and threats is not acceptable - it won't work," Asefi told a news conference. "The G-8 has two options ahead: one is the path of logic and the other the path of extremism. We hope the G-8 group will place logical recommendations on its agenda," he said.
