GENEVA, Mar 31 (Reuters) Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said today that Tehran would not use oil as a weapon in the row over its nuclear programme.

''We're not going to use energy as a political leverage,'' Mottaki told reporters in Geneva, where he is on a two-day stay.

The world's major powers -- the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council -- told Iran yesterday it must heed a UN call to curb its nuclear programme or face isolation.
