Powers to offer new Iran incentives


World powers are preparing a new incentives offer to Iran to end its suspected nuclear weapons program.

Foreign ministers from the five permanent, veto-wielding members of the United Nations Security Council – Britain, France, Russia, the United States and China – along with Germany, met Friday in London to discuss a follow-up to the third set of sanctions introduced last month.

A statement after the meeting said the powers would present anew incentives based on a package rejected by Iran in 2006. Details of the proposed new package were not released, but the ’06 package offered Iran uranium enriched in Russia if Iran agreed to stop enriching its own uranium.
