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.
The West suspects Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons capability under the cover of a civilian nuclear energy program. Iran denies the accusation and says its work is only for peaceful purposes like electricity generation.
