Iran Ready for Negotiations, Says Spokesman

An Iranian foreign ministry spokesman says Tehran is ready to negotiate with world powers, but he says the discussion about Iran's nuclear program is a "closed case."

The semi-official Fars new agency quotes Ramin Mehman-Parast as saying Iran is ready to talk, but only about a negotiation package it submitted last year to the so-called P5+1 group.  That group is comprised of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain - plus Germany.

Iran is facing calls by the United States and its allies for new sanctions against Tehran's nuclear program.
