Moscow, Aug 23, IRNA
Russia, like its other partners in Group 5+1, would study with precision Iran's response to a package of incentives in exchange for its freeze on all uranium enrichment and related activities, Russian Foreign Ministry said here Wednesday in a statement.

Iran's top nuclear negotiator and Secretary of Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), Ali Larijani, on Tuesday presented Iran's official response to a package of incentives offered by five permanent members of the UN Security Council -- China, Russia, Britain, France and the United States -- plus Germany (Group 5+1) to Tehran on June 6.

Larijani delivered Tehran's answer to ambassadors of the Group 5+1 Group as well as Swiss ambassador as caretaker of the US interests in Iran.

The Russian ministry's statement said it should be determined whether it would be possible to cooperate with Tehran based on proposals of Group 5+1.

Russia would continue its efforts to find political strategies to settle Iran's nuclear case through negotiations and intends to preserve the role of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to prevent violation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), it added.

The statement also expressed Russia's readiness to hold bilateral talks with Iranian officials and multilateral negotiations and make use of the United Nations Security Council's potentials.
