UN powers agree on Iran nuclear package: reports

LONDON (Reuters) - Major world powers on Thursday agreed on
a package of incentives for Iran to halt sensitive nuclear fuel
work as well as penalties if it does not, the Associated Press
quoted diplomats as saying, according to Sky News television.

The accord was reached at a Vienna meeting of foreign
ministers from the United States, Britain, France, Russia and
China -- all permanent members of the U.N. Security Council --
as well as Germany and the EU foreign policy chief, the
diplomats said, on condition of anonymity.
