TEHRAN, Iran, AP -Iran will make a counteroffer in response to a Western incentive package aimed at persuading Iran to suspend uranium enrichment, the Iranian foreign minister said Saturday.

The counteroffer may be a variation of the proposal made by Europe, the United States, China and Russia or could be an entirely new package, Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said, according to the state-run news agency IRNA.

“We hope that Iran’s real proposal, which might come within a modified or new package, will be examined carefully by Europe,” he said.

Mottaki did not elaborate on how the Iranian proposal may differ from the Western package.
