Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki Unveils Codes of Iran, G5+1 Modalities

August 25, 2008

Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Monday disclosed codes of two modalities offered by Iran and the G5+1.

"The main issue on table in talks between Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili and the EU Foreign Policy Chief and the G5+1 envoy Javier Solana focuses on resumption of talks," Mottaki told reporters after his tour of IRNA.

Mottaki said Jalili and Solana are busy preparing grounds for holding new round of talks.

He said to resume talks, two modalities-- one by Iran and another by the G5+1 -- have been set forth.

"There are two codes in the other (G5+1) party's modality: Freeze-Freeze and suspension," said Mottaki, adding, "However, Iran's modality contains only one code: Agreed Action."
He concluded that the main prerequisite for decoding Iran's code in the modality is holding talks.
