Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday Iran is ready to discuss "mutual concerns" over its controversial nuclear program, but claimed that the West has given in to the will of the Iranian nation.
Ahmadinejad did not say whether Iran accepts or rejects a Western proposal for resuming negotiations that demands that Tehran suspend uranium enrichment in return for a package of incentives.
"On behalf of the Iranian nation, I'm announcing that the Iranian nation will never hold negotiations about its definite rights with anybody, but we are for talks about mutual concerns to resolve misunderstandings in the international arena," Ahmadinejad told thousands of people in Qazvin, west of the capital Tehran.
