Official: Iran is ready for nuclear talks

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran's state TV is quoting the country's top nuclear negotiator as saying Tehran is ready to cooperate with world powers to ease fears over its nuclear program and has prepared a revised package of proposals to present to Western countries.

The U.S. has given Iran a deadline at the end of September to take up an offer of nuclear talks with six world powers and enjoy trade incentives should it suspend uranium enrichment activities. If not, Iran could face harsher sanctions.

Iran has vowed it will never suspend enrichment work but is ready to provide guarantees that its nuclear activities won't be diverted toward producing weapons.

Iran's top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili spoke to reporters on Tuesday.
