Brussels, May 15, IRNA
The European Union reaffirmed Monday its commitment to find a diplomatic solution to Iran's nuclear issue and offered a cooperation package to Tehran.

"We remain committed to a diplomatic solution. The intention is not to push Iran into further isolation but to find a way to bring Iran back to the negotiating track," Austrian Foreign Minister Ursula Plassnik told a news conference after a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels this afternoon.

The EU, she said, is prepared to offer a cooperation package and to support Iran's development of a sustainable and proliferation-proof civilian nuclear program, if international concerns were fully addressed and confidence in Iran's intention established.

The cooperation package will contain three elements, a modern proliferation-proof nuclear technology element, there will be an economic element and a political element, said Plassnik whose country holds the current EU Presidency.
