Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Saturday that Tehran would examine a new proposal offered by world powers in a bid to persuade it to halt controversial nuclear program.
Mottaki said Iran "needed to examine these proposals" before giving its formal response, but he insisted that his country would not stop uranium enrichment.
"We think that if there is good will, a breakthrough to get out of a situation they (the European Union and the United States) have created for themselves ... is possible," Mottaki told a press conference.
Meanwhile, Mottaki reasserted that no condition should be set for negotiations.
"Negotiations must be without preconditions. No condition for negotiations is acceptable, especially the condition that has been set," Mottaki said.
The five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany on Thursday reached agreement on presenting a package of both incentives and penalties to Iran if Iran suspended uranium enrichment to pave the way for negotiations.
