Iran ready to resolve nuclear issues if sanctions are lifted: foreign minister

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iranian foreign minister Ali Akbar Salehi has said Iran is ready to resolve all nuclear issues in the next round of talks with world powers in Baghdad if sanctions are lifted, the Iranian student news agency reported on Monday.

"If the West wants to take confidence-building measures it should start in the field of sanctions because this action can speed up the process of negotiations reaching results," Salehi said.

"If there is goodwill, one can pass through this process very easily and we are ready to resolve all issues very quickly and simply and even in the Baghdad meeting," he added.
