Lavrov: International negotiators working on new incentives for Iran

Russia's foreign minister said Tuesday that international negotiators are preparing a new package of incentives aimed at persuading Iran to freeze uranium enrichment, adding there is no need for new sanctions in response to Iran expanding its nuclear program. Sergey Lavrov said on Ekho Moskvy radio that the proposals drafted by diplomats from the US, Russia, China, Britain and France, along with Germany, would offer Iran new economic, energy and security incentives to encourage it to halt uranium enrichment. "We must focus on drafting new positive proposals now," Lavrov said.
