Iran's disputed nuclear program and natural gas supplies will likely top the agenda when Armenian President Robert Kocharian meets his Iranian counterpart in Teheran on Wednesday. Pressure is mounting on Iran to respond positively to an international package of incentives aimed at defusing the standoff over its nuclear program. Western nations have threatened to reactivate efforts to seek punitive UN Security Council sanctions unless it suspends uranium enrichment and agrees to talks by July 12. A statement by Kocharian's press service made no mention of the issue. Reached by telephone in Teheran, presidential spokesman Viktor Sogmonian refused to say whether the two leaders would be discussing the standoff.
