TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran's foreign ministry spokesman says his country is ready to show flexibility at nuclear talks to ease Western concerns over Tehran's contentious nuclear program.

The remarks by Ramin Mehmanparast, published by the official IRNA news agency Saturday, underscore Iran's push to resume talks with world powers as Western sanctions squeeze the economy tighter and the European Union weighs a boycott of Iranian natural gas.

The five members of the U.N. Security Council, plus Germany and Iran, aim to resume high-level talks that were suspended in June. The countries want the Islamic Republic to stop enriching uranium to 20 percent purity because at that level the material can be quickly turned into fuel for nuclear weapons.
