The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko says world powers have acknowledged Iran's right to use nuclear technology.

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council -- the US, Britain, France, Russia and China -- plus Germany (P5+1) in their latest meeting called for a diplomatic solution to Iran's nuclear issue, IRNA quoted Nesterenko as saying at a news conference in Moscow on Thursday.

The Russian official noted that the major powers, who met on Wednesday in Frankfurt, have expressed readiness to resume nuclear talks with Iran.

Nesterenko's remarks come as Iran's top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili has declared that Tehran will present its new nuclear package to the P5+1 next week.

Jalili told reporters in Tehran that Iran is ready for a new round of talks with the P5+1.

The West, spearheaded by the US, alleges that Iran, a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), is pursuing atomic weapons under the guise of a nuclear energy program.

Tehran vehemently denies the charges, saying that its nuclear program is solely aimed at the peaceful use of the technology.
