TEHRAN, Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast reiterated here Monday that the upcoming nuclear talks will bear results if the so-called P5+1 group recognizes Iran's nuclear rights, semi-official Mehr news agency reported.

"If the talks are supposed to yield quick results, then they ( P5+1) must recognize our rights," Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.

The new round of nuclear talks between the Islamic republic and the P5+1 -- Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States and Germany -- will start on Feb. 26 in Kazakhstan.

"We will also remove the concerns on the basis of the formula which both sides agree upon," he added.

"We are ready for negotiations that follow a logical approach and recognize our rights in full," he said, adding that "this is a clear framework that can yield prompt results."

Iran and the West are locked in a bitter dispute over its nuclear activities, with the latter accusing Tehran of developing nuclear weapon under a civilian cover, a charge Iran has consistently denied.
