Statement by United Kingdom Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett on Behalf of the P5+1 Group

October 6, 2006

Weapon Program: 

  • Nuclear

Related Country: 

  • Iran

When we met in Vienna on 1 June, we agreed a far-reaching set of proposals that aimed to address international concerns over Iran's nuclear programme and to provide the basis for long term political and economic cooperation with Iran. 

Our proposals would give Iran everything it needs to develop a modern civil nuclear power industry and allow the Iranian people to enjoy the benefits of nuclear energy, through a long-term agreement which would satisfy the international community that Iran's programme was exclusively for peaceful purposes.
