Tehran will make a counteroffer in response to a Western incentive package aimed at persuading Iran to suspend uranium enrichment, the Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Saturday night. The counteroffer may be a variation of the proposal made by Europe, the United States, China and Russia or could be an entirely new package, Mottaki said Saturday, according to the state-run news agency IRNA. "We hope that Iran's real proposal, which might come within a modified or new package, will be examined carefully by Europe," he said. He did not elaborate on how the Iranian proposal might differ from the Western package.
