U.S. State Department believes that sanctions on Iran could be removed in case if Iran fully cooperates with International community regarding the concerns over country's nuclear program, U.S. Department of State spokesman for Iran Alan Eyre told Trend Agency's Persian News Service Dalga Khatinoglu.

The spokesman was answering the question on the conditions which would lead Iran towards better relations with the international community.

Alan Eyre was participating in an online q&a session, carried out by the U.S. State Department. The online discussion focused on the recent events happening in Iran.

Head of Trend's Persian News Service Dalga Khatinoglu and four other journalists of world media outlets were invited to participate. The conference was held through the Google+ Hangout service.

Six world powers urged Iran to let international inspectors into the Parchin military site and voiced concern that Tehran has refused to cooperate with an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) probe into its alleged nuclear weapons work. Iran refused the IAEA inspectors to enter Parchin complex, saying an additional protocol to Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a mutually accepted agreement are necessary for such inspection.

"There is no difference whether there is an additional protocol or not," Eyre said. "If Iran is not hiding any military aspects, the country should fully cooperate with International community".

Earlier this week, Tehran announced that a visit to Parchin site can be arranged, once there is an overall agreement on conditions for the IAEA's probe of alleged research and development of nuclear weapons parts.

According to Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast, Iran is ready to give permission to IAEA inspectors to visit Parchin, but only after a framework for their visit can be defined.
