Iran finds parts of a Western incentives package aimed at making a breakthrough in the nuclear dispute "acceptable," but other parts need to be developed, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Sunday. Hamid Reza Asefi also said Iran is not stalling by taking time to respond to the package, which was presented to it last week and promises US and European nuclear help if Iran suspends its uranium enrichment program. "We started studying the package the moment it was presented to us. We should evaluate it. There are points which are acceptable. There are points which are ambiguous, and there are points that we believe should be strengthened," Asefi told reporters. "We will give our views in response to the package and we will offer our proposals," he said.
