Iran wants negotiations with the six world powers to be completed "as quickly as possible," the country's chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili was quoted by Reuters as saying Sunday night. "Teheran still welcomes the negotiations (with the six powers) on the basis of its package of proposals," Jalili said, according to an Iranian media report. Talks with the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China have been focused around a UN-brokered plan which would require Iran to send 1.2 tons (1,100 kilograms) of low-enriched uranium - around 70 percent of its stockpile - to Russia in one batch by the end of the year, easing concerns the material would be used for a bomb.
