Iran’s foreign minister has suggested that the country may stop its uranium enrichment program if economic sanctions were lifted.

Ali Akbar Salehi made the remarks in an interview with a local news agency on Monday.

He maintained that his country has the right to produce 20 percent weapons-grade enriched uranium.

But he also said that Iran could be flexible if the US and European countries guarantee a supply of enriched uranium.

Salehi said the US and European countries must start talking about lifting the sanctions if they hope to build trust with Iran.

Representatives from Iran and 6 nations, including the US, Russia and China, discussed Iran’s nuclear program in Istanbul, Turkey, last Saturday. But many issues were unresolved, such as Iran suspending its uranium enrichment program.

The parties will resume talks in the Iraqi capital Bagdad on May 23.
