TEHRAN (IRNA) -- German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Tuesday welcomed Iran’s new approach in offering a package to help resolve the nuclear standoff.

In a phone conversation with Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili, Steinmeier expressed hope that with the delivery of the G5+1 proposed package and start of talks between the two parties (Iran and the West), the ground would be prepared for future cooperation.
Jalili, briefing Steinmeier on part and parcel of Iran’s proposed diplomatic package to G5+1, said Iran’s proposed package can prepare a good ground for talks and collective commitment to attain peace, tranquility, and stability at the global level.
Iran’s proposed package has thus far been offered to eight international figures and institutions, including officials of the G5+1, UN Chief Ban Ki-Moon and rotating president of UN Security Council.
Iran’s package of proposal which deals with international issues, Non-Proliferation Treaty in particular, was presented to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Saltanov by Iran’s Ambassador to Russia Gholam-Reza Ansari on Friday.
Islamic Republic of Iran has frequently stated that it will never relinquish the nation’s rights to peaceful nuclear energy.
Iran’s package of proposals on various world questions has also been presented to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, European Union Foreign Policy chief Javier Solana and the member states of Group 5+1.
