President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran is ready for new nuclear talks with the West


Žsnip
"It is you who come up with excuses each time and issue resolutions on the verge of talks so that negotiations collapse," Ahmadinejad says in his speech. "Why should we shun talks? Why and how should a party that has logic and is right shun talks? It is evident that those who resort to coercion are opposed to talks and always bring pretexts and blame us instead."

"It is you who come up with excuses each time and issue resolutions on the verge of talks so that negotiations collapse," Ahmadinejad says in his speech in Kerman, in southestern Iran today. "Why should we shun talks? Why and how should a party that has logic and is right shun talks? It is evident that those who resort to coercion are opposed to talks and always bring pretexts and blame us instead."

Ahmadinejad's remarks follow other indications that Tehran is ready for a new round of talks with the five permanent Security Council members plus Germany. The last round of talks was held in Turkey last January, but the negotiations ended with no resolution.

A senior U.N. nuclear agency team is expected to visit Tehran on Saturday, the AP says.

1. The Rethugs and neo-cons won't like this at all!

 

What will they do to keep the Obama administration from talking to Iran? This is a more dangerous situation than ever.

5. Not sure this can be taken seriously.

But proceed with caution. I would say let the EU begin with exploratory talks. If the Iranians are serious then step in. Likely they are trying to buy time.

6. Sanctions working already?

I suspect he's just biding his time until he finds something else to rail against the west about.
