Iran Officially Welcomes Nuclear Talks - NYTimes.com

TEHRAN --Iran announced officially on Wednesday that it welcomed talks over its nuclear program, and said that it was ready to offer a proposal to resolve the dispute over its uranium enrichment activities, the state-run IRNA news agency reported.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced last week in a speech that Iran would take part in the talks. Wednesday's statement appeared to be an official response to an April 8 invitation by six major powers, including the United States, for a meeting to find a diplomatic solution.

The statement also said that Iran would continue its ongoing nuclear work in "active collaboration" with the United Nations nuclear agency and in the framework of the main international treaty that aims to halt the spread of nuclear weapons and promote peaceful uses of nuclear power.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran will continue its nuclear activities in an active collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency in the framework of the N.P.T., along with other member nations," it said, referring to the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
