Iran Wants 'Constructive' Talks on Nuclear Program

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran says it welcomes a "constructive"
dialogue with world powers over its nuclear program but is refusing
to halt its nuclear activities.
Quoting an official government statement, the IRNA news agency
reported Wednesday that Iran is preparing to present a modified
package of proposals aimed at ending the standoff with the West
over its disputed nuclear program. The agency didn't elaborate.
Last week, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran was preparing
a new package of proposals and was willing build a new relationship
with the U.S.
The U.S., European countries and China have invited Iran to a
new round of nuclear talks. The U.S. and some allies believe Iran
is secretly trying to develop atomic weapons - an allegation Iran
denies.
