Iran Greets Russian Plan

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has cautiously welcomed a Russian proposal for bringing Iran back to talks over its nuclear program, the official news agency reported Thursday.

The proposal calls for the international community to make limited concessions to Iran for each step it takes in meeting demands to clarify the nature of its nuclear program. "They have proposed step-by-step cooperation with Iran in the nuclear field," the IRNA news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying. "All right, we have taken our step and cooperated with the UN nuclear watchdog. Now, you take your step and come to prepare a plan together."
