Iran prepared updated nuclear proposal: TV
Iran has prepared an updated nuclear proposal and is ready to hold negotiations with world powers, state-run Iranian television quoted the Islamic Republic's chief nuclear negotiator as saying on Tuesday.

Obama had given Iran until the end of September to negotiate its nuclear enrichment activities, or face harsher sanctions.

Jalili said the package will be directed at the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - Britain, China, France, Russia and the US - plus Germany.

Germany has said it will host high-level talks this week with the United States, China, France, Britain and Russia on nuclear programme.

"Iran has prepared an updated nuclear proposal and is ready to resume negotiations with world powers," chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili was quoted as saying by al-Alam, Iran's Arabic-language satellite television channel.

"Iran ready to offer new nuclear package," Press TV, the Islamic Republic's English-language state television, said in a scrolling headline.

"We hope a new round of talks will be held to help us make the world full of progress, justice and peace," Press TV quoted Jalili as saying. It added that Jalili hoped Iran's revised proposal could serve as a basis for talks with the big powers.

Iran has previously said it is ready for "constructive" talks, but has dismissed demands to halt or freeze uranium enrichment.

Iran insists its nuclear programme is for purely civilian purposes.
