Russia regrets Tehran's failure to answer Iran-6 proposals - FM

PARIS, July 12 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's foreign minister said Wednesday Moscow regretted the fact that Iran had not given a positive answer to a package of Iran-6 nuclear incentives.

"We are not satisfied with the absence of a positive reaction from Iran, especially when it does contradict with the statement made by Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at a SCO meeting a month ago," Sergei Lavrov said after a Paris meeting of foreign ministers of the five permanent Security Council members and Germany.

The diplomat said that the Iran-6 had decided to disclose to the public the details of the nuclear proposals to Iran.

"We decided today to make these proposals public in the near future to make the Iran-6 position on the issue absolutely clear," Lavrov said, adding that the incentives were serious and beneficial for Iran.

Lavrov also said that the leaders of the Group of Eight industrialized nations would discuss Iran's nuclear program at the St. Petersburg summit this weekend.

"I think that the G8 leaders will discuss this problem and help the efforts taken by the Iran-6," he said.
