Tehran: Iran`s Foreign Minister says his country wants there to be a "win-win" outcome in talks with world powers over its nuclear program.

Ali Akbar Salehi also said in remarks carried on Monday by the semi-official ISNA news agency that Iran will always pursue its nuclear rights, a reference to uranium enrichment.

His statement comes on the eve of a low-level meeting of technical experts representing Iran and world powers in Istanbul, Turkey, to decide whether there is enough common ground for another round of full-fledged talks.

The West suspects Iran of developing nuclear weapons technology and says it is concerned about enriching uranium to a level that is just steps away from its use for warheads.

Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes like power generation and medical treatment.
