Tehran: Iran`s foreign minister says his country will continue nuclear negotiations with world powers, even after pulling out of expert-level talks to protest the US targeting companies it says evaded current sanctions.
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif made the comments in a Facebook post early on Sunday morning. He blamed "improper actions" by the US for Iran pulling out Friday.

Zarif wrote: "We will continue Geneva talks. We will show proper, calculated, purposeful and smart reaction toward any improper and unconstructive action."

He also wrote: "Talks and reaching a conclusion is a difficult job and it will definitely have ups and downs. ... We had predicted this from the first day."

The West fears Iran`s nuclear program could allow it to build nuclear weapons. Iran says its program is for peaceful purposes.
