TEHRAN, Apr. 9 (Mehr News Agency) - Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Wednesday that Iran is carefully studying U.S. officials' remarks about Iran. "We are carefully studying the statements of the American officials," Mottaki said in a joint press conference with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem.
He also said Iran's "clear-cut response" will be announced after an analysis of U.S. officials' remarks.
He added the supreme leader and the president in their Noruz (New Year) messages outlined Iran's conditions for interaction with the United States.
The main bottleneck between Iran and the U.S. is over Iran's nuclear program which is closely monitored by the UN nuclear watchdog.
Mottaki also suggested that the world must prepare itself for the total eradication of nuclear weapons.
"Today, the world must prepare itself for the destruction of atomic weapons,"
However, the minister insisted that the world should use nuclear energy as a "clean source of energy".
