To initiate talks with six major powers on global issues, Iran handed over its new package of proposals on Wednesday.
Representatives of six major powers, namely France, Britain, Russia, China, the United States and Germany, involved in talks over Iran's nuclear issue received the packages, a Xinhua photographer said.
Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki delivered the package in a brief ceremony to the four ambassadors of China, Russia, France and Germany, the British charge d'affaires, and the Swiss envoy representing the United States.
Swiss ambassador to Tehran Livia Leu Agosti represented the United States which has broken diplomatic relations with Iran for about 30 years.
Although the contents of the new package were not immediately known, Iran has constantly said that these proposals contain its concern over the global issues, and respect the views of other nations.
What is beneficial and urgent for Iran, on one side, and for major powers, on the other side, is to take steps to initiate the talks which have been suspended for months.
Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili reiterated Wednesday that Iran is ready to start a new round of talks with six major powers, adding that no side can impose its will on the other side.
According to local satellite Press TV, Mottaki said Tuesday that "the new package has been updated in the light of the current developments in the world and different events that have happened."
