Iran's response to the 5+1 proposed package includes "very positive and transparent signs", said Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hamid-Reza Asefi on Wednesday.

He stressed that Iran's nuclear case will be resolved peacefully and without tension through negotiations if Europeans and others pay due attention to each of its transparent and positive points.

"Tehran's response is very comprehensive and includes the Islamic Republic of Iran's attitudes towards the continuation of
negotiations," he said.

Asefi reiterated that Iran's response is the outcome of great efforts and careful study by different expert committees adding that it also shows Iran's good will in resolving its nuclear issue.

"Iran's timely response indicates that the country is committed to international promises and is seeking peaceful transparent activities," he said.

Asefi further called on the Group 5+1 to precisely examine Iran's response saying that the group is expected to return to the negotiation table with Iran as soon as possible.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman reiterated that negotiation is the only logical solution to Iran's nuclear case.

Iran's Supreme National Security Council Secretary, Ali Larijani, presented Iran's response to the proposed package of five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, as previously promised, on August 22.
