Turkey's foreign minister says his country will remain engaged in diplomatic efforts to resolve an international dispute over Iran's nuclear program.

Ahmet Davutoglu says Turkey wants to facilitate a peaceful end to the standoff.

"We do not want to have any nuclear weaponry system in our region," Davutoglu said Friday in Lisbon, Portugal.

Davutoglu said he has maintained a "very constructive dialogue" with Washington, even though Turkey voted against new US-backed sanctions against Iran that passed in the UN Security Council last month.
