VIENNA - The five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany will meet in Vienna this Thursday for a new round of talks on the Iran nuclear dispute, the British embassy said on Tuesday.

The embassy did not say exactly when or where the talks would take place. Participating would be representatives of the United States, Russia, Britain, France, China and Germany. They have so far not managed a unified line on Iran.

The Vienna meeting was previously reported by the Beijing foreign ministry. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had also on Monday indicated there would be "certain events" this week.

Lavrov added that the five permanent members of the UN Security Council were ready to allow Iran peaceful use of atomic energy if it answered questions by the IAEA about its nuclear programme.

On Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki, visiting Malaysia, said any proposal by the international community with economic incentives for Teheran must fulfill two conditions.

Iran's right to peaceful use of atomic energy must be recognized, and the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) should be strengthened, he said.
