Iran ready for serious talks on comprehensive n-deal

Tehran, Feb 11: Iran is ready for serious talks with world powers to reach a comprehensive agreement over its nuclear programme, President Hassan Rouhani said here on Monday.

"As we have been serious in concluding the previous agreement (in Geneva last November), we are also serious in reaching a comprehensive agreement in the upcoming talks" with the P5+1 group, namely the US, China, France, Britain and Germany, he said addressing foreign ambassadors on the eve of the anniversary of Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution.

Rouhani's remarks came about a week ahead of the new round of nuclear talks between the two sides starting Feb 18 in the Austrian capital of Vienna.

He said all countries in the world should enjoy peaceful nuclear technology and slammed monopolising nuclear technology as "unfair and illegal".

Iran on Sunday agreed to take seven "practical steps" in its cooperation with the IAEA.
