Iran ready for possible US military action, but insists on dialogue: FM

ISTANBUL (AFP): Iran is prepared for possible US military action over its nuclear programme, but believes dialogue is the best way to resolve the dispute, Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said here Wednesday.

"The United States put forward two options: the first is to use violence and the second (is) cooperation," Mottaki told reporters at the end of a two-day visit to Turkey. "We are ready for both eventualities but, of course, we have always preferred cooperation."

Mottaki insisted that the dispute should be resolved peacefully.

"A diplomatic solution is the way" to settle the problem, he said, speaking through an interpreter.
