Iran will resolve the current crisis created by certain countries and go ahead with its nuclear research program through continuation of talks, visiting Deputy Foreign Minister Mehdi Mostafavi said here Tuesday.

Talking to IRNA, Mostafavi said all countries have the right to use nuclear technology to achieve peaceful ends.

"Iran's nuclear research is based on rules and regulations of international organizations (such as) the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) which give the country the inalienable right," he said.

He said "Iran intends through talks and other peaceful ways to settle the country's nuclear case." But "if Iran's dossier is sent to the UN Security Council, we will suspend voluntary cooperation with the IAEA," he added.
