Report: Iran FM says Tehran can solve nuclear dispute 'quickly' in Baghdad talks
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) ' A semiofficial Iranian news agency is quoting the country's foreign minister as saying that Tehran is ready to resolve all of its nuclear disputes in talks with world powers scheduled for late May in Baghdad.
Isna on Monday quoted Ali Akbar Salehi as saying that Tehran is "ready to solve all issues very quick and easily" if there is goodwill.
Tehran appears to be signaling flexibility after Saturday talks in Istanbul with world powers that both sides hailed as positive. They agreed to a new round of negotiations in the Iraqi capital.
Salehi urged the West to lift sanctions imposed on Tehran after it refused to stop controversial nuclear activities that the U.S. and its allies say are aimed at developing weapons technology. Iran denies the charges.
