'Rejecting incentives would indicate nuclear goal'

The EU's foreign policy chief said Tuesday that if Iran rejects a planned package of incentives meant to convince it to abandon uranium enrichment, it would be a clear sign that Tehran was pursuing enrichment in order to produce a nuclear weapon. Javier Solana said the package - likely to be agreed upon by top US, Russian, Chinese and European officials this week - would significantly enhance Iran's possibilities of producing energy. "If they reject, it will be once again a clear sign they are looking for a level of enrichment that goes way beyond what is necessary for production of energy, to enter nuclear weapon type of enrichment that for us will be very dangerous," Solana told the European Parliament's foreign affairs committee.
