MOSCOW  — A news agency is quoting a Russian diplomat as saying the sextet of countries negotiating with Iran over its nuclear program sees no alternative to a diplomatic solution.

The Interfax agency says Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was speaking after a teleconference with officials from the US, Germany, China, France and Britain.

Ryabkov reportedly said all of those in Wednesday's teleconference "stated that the search for a solution through diplomatic efforts does not and cannot have any alternative."

Iran's resistance to international pressure has raised concerns about its nuclear ambitions. Tehran says it is for peaceful purposes, but the US and other Western allies say they believe Iran is aiming to make weapons.
