Mottaki: Iran working on new proposals for more nuclear talks

Iran is preparing a set of new proposals aimed at restarting talks on the country's nuclear program, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Thursday. European Union and French officials said Thursday they are working to set up the new talks, which would be the first international discussion on Iran's nuclear program since US President Barack Obama took office in January. "We do believe that this new proposed package would be a very good base for mutual cooperation on the international level," Mottaki told reporters after attending an international donors' conference on Somalia. He not elaborate on the proposals.
