Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Iran on Tuesday to cooperate fully with the UN nuclear agency and the UN Security Council to settle the dispute over its nuclear program, saying the United Nations wants a peaceful solution. Ban was responding to a question about French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner's comments Sunday that the world community must be prepared for "the worst" - the possibility of war - if the nuclear standoff continues. "I have stated publicly many times my position and United Nations' position on Iranian nuclear issues," he said.
