Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis on Tuesday had a telephone conversation with her Iranian counterpart Manuchehr Motaki, on the latter's initiative, a foreign ministry press release said.
According to the announcement, the conversation between the two ministers focused on Monday's EU General Affairs Council decision on a new proposal-package by the Union to Iran, in an effort for a diplomatic solution of the country's nuclear program issue to be found.
Bakoyannis told her Iranian counterpart that the EU's proposal "is substantial and particularly advantageous and should be evaluated in a positive and constructive manner by Iran," the announcement concluded.
