Iran ready for nuclear talks: Ahmadinejad
Tehran: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran is ready for nuclear talks with the world powers amid toughening sanctions aimed at forcing Tehran to sharply scale back its nuclear program.
Ahmadinejad, however, says sanctions won`t force Iran to capitulate to Western demands.
The United States and allies want Iran to halt uranium enrichment, which they worry could lead to weapons-grade material. Iran says it only seeks reactors for energy and research.
Ahmadinejad made the remarks in Kerman, southeastern Iran on Thursday.
Iran had previously indicated that it is ready for a new round of talks with the five permanent Security Council members plus Germany. A senior UN nuclear agency team is expected to visit Tehran on Saturday.
