Pakistan has supported Iran's right to pursue its nuclear program for peaceful purposes.

"As signatory to the NPT, Iran has legitimate right for peaceful uses of nuclear energy," Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Naeem Khan told reporters here on Monday.

He said Pakistan is encouraging Iran and the European Union to go for peaceful settlement of the problem.

"Pakistan is against use of force as it would destabilize the region," the spokesman added.

He rejected a question that Islamabad was mediating in talks between Iran and the European Union.

"There would be mediation if both parties approached a third party," he said, "Talks between Iran and the EU are on".
