Mottaki urges 'peaceful' solution to nuke dispute

Iran's foreign minister said Wednesday that the escalating dispute over his country's nuclear program should be solved peacefully with the United States, which is pushing for a harder line against the Islamic Republic. Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki spoke at a news conference in Istanbul, as the UN's nuclear watchdog agency in Vienna, Austria, prepared to release a report expected to confirm that Iran was continuing uranium enrichment, despite international calls for its suspension.
