JAKARTA, Feb 23 (Reuters) Iran is seriously considering a Russian offer to enrich uranium for Tehran, its foreign minister said today.

Discussions between Iran and Russia over the offer ended on Tuesday with an agreement to continue talks this week during a visit to Tehran by the head of Moscow's nuclear agency.

''There must be some new elements in that proposal. If you ask about the main elements I will tell you -- the timing and place,'' Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki told reporters after meeting his Indonesian counterpart in Jakarta.

''I believe the Russian proposal can be considered seriously and may be reaching a kind of compromise,'' Mottaki added, speaking in English.
