Envoys at Iran talks reach some agreements on incentives for Teheran

Talks on incentives aimed at persuading Iran to stop its nuclear program ended with no clear result Wednesday night, though the meeting's chairman said diplomatic efforts would continue. The five permanent UN Security Council members as well as Germany and the European Union "reached agreements on some major parts" during the closed-door meeting, said Chinese Assistant Foreign Minister He Yafei, who hosted the session. He did not give details of the talks. The envoys discussed proposed political, security and economic incentives designed to coax Teheran into stopping a uranium enrichment program that the US and many other countries fear could produce weapons material.
