World Powers to Present Iran with 'Good' Offer
Arutz Sheva ^ | 26/2/13 | Elad Benari

World powers will present Iran with an updated and "good" offer at talks this week on its nuclear program, an EU official said Monday, although hopes for a breakthrough appear slim, AFP reports.

Talks aimed at curbing Tehran's nuclear drive start Tuesday in Kazakhstan, with the so-called P5+1 represented by the European Union sitting down with an Iranian team led by negotiator Saeed Jalili.

"We have prepared a good and updated offer for the talks, which we believe is balanced and a fair basis for constructive talks," said the spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, according to AFP.

"The offer addresses international concerns... on the nature of the Iranian nuclear program, but is also responsive to Iranian ideas,” he added.

"We hope that Iran will seize this opportunity and come to the talks with flexibility and commitment to make concrete progress towards a confidence-building step."

A source close to the negotiations said the offer would still insist that Iran halt enriching uranium to 20 percent, shut down its controversial Fordow uranium enrichment plant and send abroad all uranium already enriched to 20 percent.

"This still forms the basis of the demands of the 5+1 group," said the source who asked not to be identified.

Another Western source said, according to AFP, that the powers could discuss lifting sanctions on Iran in exchange for specific concessions, although the source provided no further details.

In Washington, a top U.S. official refused to be drawn on the details of what he called a "serious, updated proposal" to Iran saying "we need to let the negotiators do their jobs."

Every minute we “talk” with these dirtbags is one more minute closer to them getting the means to destroy the world.

If they accept the agreement, it means they need a few more months of clandestine development yet.

If they reject, they already have it.

The stupid morons don’t understand Iran’s mullahs nor the hadiths at all. Which is exactly why Ezekiel 38 will happen as prophesied.

Pardon me, sir; there is a multi-legged creature crawling on your shoulder - Spock, just before performing a peculiar brand of diplomacy.

The squishy constituent masters of the universe have spoken with green stuff and said that there will be no more wars. War is unthinkable, because it might disturb the markets and elevate the rabble.
