Iran ready to talk on its nuclear program, but has conditions: president
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday that Iran is in favor of dialogue over its nuclear program but has conditions, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.
"We say that Iran is in favor of dialogue (over its nuclear program), but we have conditions to talk with them (Western countries)," Ahmadinejad said addressing a crowd in Shahr-e Kord, the capital city of Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari Province in southwestern Iran, Xinhua reported.
"We will announce our conditions soon," he was quoted as saying.
He called UN Security Council's last week sanction resolution as a "political game" and said that "You (powers) made a move and now it is Iran's turn (to make a move)," he said without elaborating, according to Fars.
Last week, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution to impose a fourth round of sanctions against Iran over its suspected nuclear program.
