Iran president says ready for final nuclear talks
Successs will depend if the West is "honest and serious," says Rowhani
Iran's official IRNA news agency is quoting President Hassan Rowhani as saying his country is ready for final nuclear talks with world powers.
The Tuesday remarks came during a meeting with visiting Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Carl Bildt.
"We are fully ready for the final phase of talks and achieving their conclusion," IRNA quoted Rowhani as saying.
He said if the West is "honest and serious" then there is possibility of achieving agreement.
Iran and world powers are to begin new rounds of talks later in February after Tehran in November agreed to cap its nuclear program in return to easing sanctions by the West. The six-month agreement went into practice in January.
The West suspects Iran's nuclear program has military dimension, a charge Iran denies.
