Iran's foreign ministry spokesman said Tuesday that world powers must recognize Tehran's nuclear rights in order to resolve the standoff over the country's nuclear program.

Ramin Mehmanparast said that if the P5+1 countries accepted Iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy, the current dispute would resolved easily, according to Iran's ISNA news agency.



"If the 5+1 [five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany] were to adopt a logical approach in the talks, the problem would be solved. All it would take is for [them] to recognize Iran's nuclear rights and its rights to peaceful nuclear fuel cycles and all the difficulties would be resolved," Mehmanparast said.

Mehmanparast made the comments during his press conference in Tehran.
