Venezuelan Ambassador to Tehran Amenhotep Zambrano has lauded Islamic Republic’s diplomatic approach in settling the dispute over the nuclear energy program.

Commenting on the upcoming nuclear talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council -- Russia, China, France, Britain, and the US -- plus Germany -- Zambrano said on Monday that world powers should be happy Tehran wants to resolve problems via dialogue.

Zambrano expressed his country’s opposition to sanctions against Iran, saying the US must lift sanctions because it does not have the right to impose such sanctions.

The Venezuelan envoy said the time had come for diplomacy and efforts must be in this direction.

The next round of negotiations between Iran and the six major world powers on Tehran’s nuclear energy program will be held in Geneva on October 15 and 16.

The foreign ministers of Iran and the six countries held their latest round of negotiations at the United Nations headquarters in New York on September 26.

On Monday,Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has underlined that Iran does not expect that all pending standoffs over Iran nuclear program to be solved within one session in Geneva talks.

“Diplomatic enactment (of major world powers) within a specified time schedule will be considered as the basis of Iran's practical offers,” Zarif told reporters who are accompanying him within Geneva visit.
