Bush cautious about Tehran offer
The Bush Administration says Tehran's refusal to stop uranium enrichment prior to any talks "fell short" of the conditions set by the United Nations Security Council.
The White House deputy press secretary, Dana Perino, said the Administration would "consult with allies" before it responded in detail to Iran's proposal for talks.
"We acknowledge that Iran considers its response as a serious offer and we will review it," she said. "[But it] falls short of the conditions set by the Security Council which requires the full and verifiable suspension of all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities."
After spending several hours at the White House discussing Iran's offer with the Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, President George Bush spoke to the UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, while Dr Rice spoke to Javier Solana, the European Union's foreign affairs spokesman heading negotiations with Iran for the so-called EU Three - Germany, France and Britain.
