President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Iran's four preconditions for talks with Group 5+1, IRNA reported.
Addressing the massive gathering of people in the northwestern city of Ardebil, he said one precondition for Iran to take part in the talks is that the 5+1 should make it clear whether they are committed to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regulations.
Second, he said, they should explain what their objective is with conducting talks with Iran: is it negotiation and friendship or animosity?
Furthermore, the President added, the 5+1 should make it clear whether they are to follow rules and logics or are to make ballyhoo by issuing statements if they feel they are failing.
Ahmadinejad said they should also announce their views about the atomic bombs "the Zionist regime" possesses.
He said if Westerners chose to maintain silence when posed by these questions, then it will mean that they are not committed to the IAEA regulations, back "the Zionists' nuclear bombs", are not following logic in the talks and do not mean friendship and peace.
Noting that the Iranian nation will deal differently with those who neglect logic and rules in talks and mean animosity, President Ahmadinejad stressed that the Iranian nation was not willing to withdraw from its rights.
He said Iran has stressed from the very beginning that they have no way but talk with Iran but, he added, any such dialogue should be based on justice and respect.
