EU presents modified incentives pack as Iran remains defiant on nuke issue

EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana on Saturday presented Iran a modified package of incentives to suspend uranium enrichment, even as Tehran reaffirmed its right to do just that. Iran's government spokesman, Gholam Hossein Elham, immediately said Iran won't accept the package if it asks Iran to suspend uranium enrichment. Solana's spokeswoman, Cristina Gallach, said Solana presented the package to Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki Saturday. "Mr. Solana handed over the package," Gallach told The Associated Press by telephone. Before leaving for Iran on Friday, Solana said the plan - which he is presenting on behalf of the United States, Germany, Britain, France, Russia and China - "aims to address Iran's essential interests."
