Iran is ready to enter negotiations over an incentives package offered by the UN powers who hope it will encourage the Middle East country to abandon its nuclear fuel enrichment program, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday. Putin, who held talks with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at a regional summit in Shanghai, told reporters that, "the Iranian side responded positively to the six-nation proposal for a way out of the crisis." The Russian leader said on Thursday that "Iran is ready to enter negotiations" and that he hoped Iran would soon set a date for the start of talks. Ehsan Jahandideh, a member of the Iranian president's delegation in Shanghai for a regional summit, confirmed that Ahmadinejad offered to enter into negotiations over the six-nation proposal "to ease tensions."
