Iran told world powers on Monday they must stop working against its atomic drive and instead adopt a policy of interaction with the Islamic republic to resolve the nuclear crisis.

"It is the right time for the other parties to review their policy. Rather than countering Iran, they should interact with Iran," foreign ministry spokesman Hassan Ghashghavi told reporters.

World powers and Israel are at loggerheads with Iran over its nuclear programme, which they suspect is aimed at making atomic weapons, a charge consistently denied by Tehran.
